1 Not tomorrow, but today,
God has said be up and doing;
He, our feeble strength renewing,
Goes before us all the way,
Making brighter ev’ry day.

Words of cheer, sweet words of cheer,
From the Saviour now we hear;
And our strength he doth renew,
As our journey we pursue,
Goes before us all the way,
Goes before us all the way.

2 Not tomorrow, but today,
Haste to tell the joyful story
Of eternal life in glory;
God’s command let all obey,—
Not tomorrow, but today. [Refrain]

3 Not tomorrow, but today,
If our lamp of faith is burning,
Let it shine on those now turning
From the path of sin away,
Help the wand’ring soul to pray. [Refrain]

4 Not tomorrow, but today,
Labor on and weary never,
Till our feet shall cross the river,
Till our blessed Lord shall say,
Welcome home to endless day. [Refrain]
