1 Lifetime is working time,
Spend no idle days;
Jesus is calling thee
On the harvest ways.
Working with a willing hand,
Sing a song of praise;
Work, ever work for Jesus!

Refrain:
Swiftly the hours of labor fly,
Freighted with love let each pass by!
There is joy in labor for the struggling neighbor,
Work, ever work for Jesus!

2 Lifetime is working time,
Learn where duty lies;
Grasp every passing day
As a precious prize,
Glad to help the sorrowing,
Glad to sympathize;
Work, ever work for Jesus! [Refrain]

3 Lifetime is working time,
Do thy honest part;
Though in discouragements,
Bear a cheerful heart;
Trusting Jesus as thy friend,
Ne’er from him depart,
Work, ever work for Jesus! [Refrain]
