1. In the vineyard of the Lord,
There is work for all to do;
Will you go and work today,
With a purpose strong and true?

Heed the call, brother dear,
For workers today;
Let your eyes see the need
Of workers today.

2. Brother, sister, hear the call!
All along, your aid afford,
Let us strive to save the lost
Strive to save by work and word. [Refrain]

3. Mark the spirit’s direful fate,
Wheresoever sin is found;
Come, and lend a helping hand,
Let the shackles be unbound. [Refrain]

4. Oh, for workers strong and brave,
Who will lift the banner high;
So the lost can see the way,
To the mansions in the sky. [Refrain]
