83. Hear the Master Say

1 Hear the master say, “Go and work today,
For the lab’rers still are few;”
Shall His earnest cry pass unheeded by,
When there’s work for all to do?
He has need of thee, and his urgent plea
Is, “The harvest now is white;”
Let us quickly haste lest the sheaves lie waste,
For too soon will come the night.

Refrain:
Hear the Master say, “Go and work today,
For the lab’rers still are few;”
Shall His earnest cry pass unheeded by,
When there’s work for all to do?

2 Go! the hungry feed, and the weary lead
To the rest of Jesus’ love;
Tho' your strength be small, God is over all,
With a blessing from above;
Seek for souls to win from the ways of sin;
Work with cheerful heart and true;
And the jewels rare that have been your care,
Shall at last be given to you. [Refrain]

3 Go and work today; O do not delay,
For the night is coming on;
And the least you do shall be blest to you,
If for Jesus it is done;
Tho' the seeds that fall may be few and small,
They shall not be sown in vain;
In the garnered sheaves, which the Lord receives,
Will be found the ripened grain. [Refrain]
