Lyrics

Though the work of life be lowly,
Let me true and faithful be;
This the thought that makes it holy—
Christ has set the task for me.

Refrain

He has set the task for me!
He has set the task for me!
This the thought that makes it holy—
Christ has set the task for me!

Hush, O heart, thy wild ambition!
Toil, O hands, in service free!
Blest indeed is my condition—
Christ has set the task for me.

Refrain

Christ, I know, will not forget me
When at length the evening falls;
From the place where He has set me
I will answer when He calls.
