Lyrics

Working in the vineyard,
Working all the day,
Never be discouraged,
Only watch and pray;
Do your duty nobly,
Heart and hand unite,

Refrain

Minding the watchword,
Stand by the right,
Minding the watchword,
Stand by the right.

Working for the Master,
Do not be afraid,
Trials may befall you,
Never be dismayed,
Put your trust in Jesus,
Keep your armor bright,

Refrain

Marching on to glory,
Still your way pursue,
In your Father’s kingdom,
There’s a crown for you;
Live for Him who loves you,
Keep your colors bright,

Refrain
