Asa Hull (1828–1907)


There is work for ev­ery one,
Work, work, work for God;
Soon the seed time will be gone,
Work, work for God.
God, in whom we live and move,
Bids thee all thy time im­prove;
Show thy faith in works of love:
Work, work for God.

Scatter, broad­cast pre­cious seed,
Work, work, work for God;
To temp­ta­tions give no heed,
Work, work for God.
Do not mind what oth­ers say,
Ever keep the nar­row way;
Work, while it is called to­day:
Work, work for God.

Be thy­self first pure in heart,
Work, work, work for God;
Then thy joy to all im­part,
Work, work for God.
Tell the sto­ry of the cross,
Counting earth­ly things but dross.
Thou shalt ne­ver suf­fer loss:
Work, work for God.

Work, for God will make you strong,
Work, work, work for God;
All re­sults to Him be­long,
Work, work for God;
Find thy joy in God’s sweet will,
Every pro­mise He’ll ful­fill,
And His peace will keep thee still:
Work, work for God.
