Work for the promised blessing,
Work, for the day will come;
Follow the gleam of the beacon light,
Jesus will lead us home.

Refrain

Work, for the day is dawning,
Far on the eastern plain;
The promise came to the sons of men,
Jesus will come again.

Work, for the night is dreary,
Pray for the reign of right;
Follow our Lord, tho’ the way be dark,
Jesus will give us light.

Refrain

Fight for the battle wrought,
Fight for the death of sin;
And when we stand at the pearly gate,
Jesus will let us in.

Refrain
