1Servant of God, rise, take thy part,
And go where duty calleth,
For on thy heart, renewed by grace,
The voice of Jesus falleth.
Work! Nor for pleasures wait,
Work! For the night soon falls,
Work! For the task is great,
Work! ’Tis Thy God Who calls.
2Still many souls for whom Christ died,
Are plunged in sinful slumber,
And, growing not in grace and love,
The Church’s field encumber.
Work! Nor for pleasures wait,
Work! For the night soon falls,
Work! For the task is great,
Work! ’Tis Thy God Who calls.
3Hard is the toil, and bitter-sweet
The task before thee lying,
But God will arm the faithful soul
That trusts Him e’en in dying.
Work! Nor for pleasures wait,
Work! For the night soon falls,
Work! For the task is great,
Work! ’Tis Thy God Who calls.
4Then work in God’s great harvest-field
With hope and high endeavor,
Till God shall call thee to His rest,
To reign with Him forever.
Work! Nor for pleasures wait,
Work! For the night soon falls,
Work! For the task is great,
Work! ’Tis Thy God Who calls. Amen.
Matthew24:42-4642 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
