Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.@Ecclesiastes 9:10

Christian, work for Jesus,
Who on earth for thee
Labored, wearied, suffered,
Died upon the tree.

Work with feet untiring,
By the Master led,
Help to free the drunkards
From their bondage dread.

Work with lips so fervid
That thy words may prove
Thou hast brought a message
From the God of love.

Work with heart that burneth;
Humbly at His feet
Priceless gems to offer,
For His crown made meet.

Work with prayer unceasing,
Borne on faith’s strong wing,
Earnestly beseeching
Trophies for the King.

Work while strength endureth,
Until death draw near;
Then thy Lord’s sweet welcome
Thou in Heaven shalt hear.
