Charles H. Gabriel (🔊 pdf nwc).

Would you know the joy of living
On the higher ground of love?
Would you know the Savior’s friendship?
Would you every promise prove?
Would you gather precious jewels
For your crown of life above?
Live, work, pray for others!

Refrain

Others! others!
Live to work, and watch and pray for others!
Let the blessèd Master our example ever be;
Live, work, pray for others!

Would you have the world the better
That you lived in it today?
Would you let a little sunshine
In upon some darkened way?
Would you bring a soul to Jesus?
Would you seek for those astray?
Live, work, pray for others!

Refrain

Would you cheer another fainting
In the battle for the right?
Would you stay the foot that falters
As it climbs the mountain’s height?
Would you speak the word of kindness
That shall make a dark day bright?
Live, work, pray for others!

Refrain

Would you feel the secret presence
Of the Master as you go?
Would you walk with faith unshaken
On your mission here below?
Would you face your Lord unfearing,
His Well done! at last to know?
Live, work, pray for others!

Refrain
