Lyrics

Be a witness for the Master,
Wheresoe’er you go;
Ever ready, courage steady,
Love to others show.

Refrain

There is room within the vineyard,
There is work for you;
Every duty shines with beauty,
If to God we’re true.

Tell redemption’s precious story,
Tell it o’er and o’er;
Some who need it may not heed it,
Tell it all the more.

Refrain

Leave results with Christ the Master,
Only do your part;
Time is flying, men are dying,
Strive to reach some heart.

Refrain

Life is meted out for service,
Spend it for the Lord;
Up in Heaven rest is given,
And a bright reward.
