1 Christian, wake, no longer sleep:
Shall we rest while others weep?
Shall we sit with folded hands,
When the Lord Himself commands?
Go and work! this hour begin;
Go and seek the lost to win;
From the dark abodes of sin,
To the feast, O bring them in!
2 Do we love the Saviour's name?
Can our faith His promise claim?
Have we pledged to Him our all?
Shall we not obey His call" [Chorus]
3 Do we trust Him as we ought?
Do we live as He has taught?
Are we His, and His alone?
Let our faith by works be shown. [Chorus]
4 There's a cross that we must bear
If the crown we hope to wear:
Onward then, with vigor new;
Time is short, the days are few. [Chorus]
