There’s a voice that calls for reapers,
Those who hear are surely blest;
’Tis the voice of Jesus calling,
Work for Him and do your best.

Refrain

Do your best each day for Jesus,
By and by you will have rest;
But today He calls for reapers,
Work for Him and do your best.

Many souls now sit in darkness,
Many hearts are sore distressed;
Bring to them a ray of sunshine,
Work for Christ and do your best.

Refrain

Like a dove perhaps some loved one
Now has flown from the home rest;
Where perchance some heart is breaking,
Go today and do your best.

Refrain

When the shades of evening gather,
God will call you home to rest;
But today He needs your service,
Work for Him and do your best.

Refrain
