Arise…and be doing, and the Lord be with thee.@1 Chronicles 22:16

D. Frank Garton, in Chiming Voices, edited by James H. Rosecrans & J. T. Toof (New York: Asa Hull, 1893), number 8 (🔊 pdf nwc).

O the Lord has need of children in His service,
He has something for each little one to do;
He is calling for the faithful and the willing,
He is calling for brave hearts and true.

Refrain

Then be up, up, up, up and doing,
With hearts ever brave and true;
Take your place in the race,
Find the work that is waiting for you.

There is need of little soldiers in the battle,
For the hosts of sin are rising in their might;
Then arise and join the valiant little army,
Wage a warfare for good and for right.

Refrain

There is need of little workers in the harvest,
For the grain is ripe and ready for the yield;
Then arise and join His band of little workers,
Go ye forth to the great harvest field.

Refrain
