Go work today, no longer delay,
The morning with joy is bright;
Haste, haste away, and labor today,
O see harvest fields all white.


Go work today, O go work today,
The moments and days go by;
Faithful and true, your labor pursue,
And work for that home on high.

Go work today, O do not delay,
The Savior repeats the call;
Go with a will, your mission fulfill,
O haste, there is work for all.


Go work today, the message obey,
The harvest will soon be o’er;
Moments and hours, like beautiful flowers,
Will soon pass to come no more.
