Lyrics

Live for Je­sus every day,
As we journey on the way,
Toiling every day and night,
Pressing on with all our might.

Refrain

Brother, won’t you help us now?
While the Spir­it tells you how;
Take the Bi­ble for your guide,
And the Sav­ior by your side.

For the night will surely come,
When your work will all be done;
As we journey thro’ the land,
Come and lend a helping hand.

Refrain

Yes, your work will soon be done,
Battles fought, and vic­to­ry won;
Then in bliss we all shall rest,
With the tranquil, pure and blest.
