1 O never be weary, with vigor pursue
The work which the Master has left us to do.
If, patiently toiling, we trust in the Lord,
The harvest will bring us a blessèd reward.

Refrain:
We shall reap if we faint not, reap by and by,
Treasures immortal that never decay,
Crowns of rejoicing that fade not away,
We shall reap if we faint not, reap by and by.

2 O never be weary, but work with a will,
Our Father will surely His promise fulfill.
From seeds we have scattered in sorrow and tears,
We’ll gather bright sheaves when the harvest appears. [Refrain]

3 O never be weary, thro’ trial and care,
Be faithful to duty and earnest in prayer.
No labor for Jesus was ever in vain,
Go work in His vineyard, and wait for the rain. [Refrain]

4 Remember His mercy, remember His love,
Who came, our Redeemer, from glory above.
Then never be weary, but joyfully pursue
The work which the Master has left us to do. [Refrain]
