The Work Must Go On
PDF File Worksheet

A glad message rings through the world today,
It echoes through the countries afar,
That the rising Sun, with celestial ray,
Scatters healing whereer men are.

The good work must go on and on,
Till the world for the Lord is won,
Greater triumphs must be gained,
Greater heights in love attained,
Till the glorious day of God shall dawn.

There are many souls that were dark as night,
All shadowed by the blackness of sin,
That are glowing now with immortal light,
Since the glory of God shone in.


There are hungry hearts that were starved for bread,
But Jesus has supplied every need;
For on Him, the Bread of Life, they have fed
Till their spirits are glad indeed.


And the deaf shall hear, and the blind eyes see;
The Word of God shall quicken and glow;
Christ the King of earth and heaven still shall be
Till His glory each heart shall know.

Working in the Vineyard
PDF File Worksheet

Working in the vineyard,
Working all the day,
Never be discouraged,
Only watch and pray;
Do your duty nobly,
Heart and hand unite,

Minding the watchword,
Stand by the right,
Minding the watchword,
Stand by the right.

Working for the Master,
Do not be afraid,
Trials may befall you,
Never be dismayed,
Put your trust in Jesus,
Keep your armor bright,


Marching on to glory,
Still your way pursue,
In your Fathers kingdom,
Theres a crown for you;
Live for Him Who loves you,
Keep your colors bright,

Christian Rise and Act Thy Creed
PDF File Worksheet

Christian, rise and act thy creed;
Let thy prayer be in thy deed;
Seek the right, perform the true,
Raise thy works and life anew.

Hearts around thee sink with care;
Thou canst help their load to bear;
Thou canst bring inspiring light,
Arm their faltering wills to fight.

Let thine aims be hope and joy,
And thy worship Gods employ;
Give Him thanks in humble zeal,
Learning all His will to feel.

Come, then law divine, and reign;
Freest faith assailed in vain,
Perfect love bereft of fear,
Born in heaven and radiant here.

Workman of God
PDF File Worksheet

Workman of God! O lose not heart,
But learn what God is like;
And in the darkest battlefield
Thou shalt know where to strike.

Thrice blest is he to whom is givn
The instinct that can tell
That God is on the field, when He
Is most invisible.

Blest too is he who can divine
Where real right doth lie,
And dares to take the side that seems
Wrong to mans blindfold eye.

Then learn to scorn the praise of men,
And learn to lose with God;
For Jesus won the world through shame,
And beckons thee His road.

Strengthen for Service, Lord
PDF File Worksheet
5th Century

Strengthen for service, Lord, the hands
That holy things have taken;
Let ears that now have heard Thy songs
To clamor never waken.

Lord, may the tongues which Holy sang
Keep free from all deceiving;
The eyes which saw Thy love be bright
Thy blessèd hope perceiving.

The feet that tread Thy holy courts
From light do Thou not banish;
The bodies by Thy body fed
With Thy new life replenish.

Bringing in the Sheaves
PDF File Worksheet

Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,

Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
Fearing neither clouds nor winters chilling breeze;
By and by the harvest, and the labor ended,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.


Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Though the loss sustained our spirit often grieves;
When our weepings over, He will bid us welcome,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Be Strong !
PDF File Worksheet

Be strong!
We are not here to play, to dream, to drift;
We have hard work to do and loads to lift;
Shun not the struggle, face it, tis Gods gift.
Be strong, be strong, be strong!

Be strong!
Say not the days are evilwhos to blame?
And fold the hands and acquiesceO shame!
Stand up, speak out, and bravely, in Gods Name.
Be strong, be strong, be strong!

Be strong!
It matters not how deep entrenched the wrong,
How hard the battle goes, the day, how long;
Faint not, fight on! Tomorrow comes the song.
Be strong, be strong, be strong!
