Hymn/Song Information

Come labour on Who dares stand idle




Come, labor on!
Who dares stand idle,
on the harvest plain
While all around him waves
the golden grain?
And to each servant
does the Master say,
“Go work today.”


Come, labor on!
Claim the high calling angels
cannot share—
To young and old
the Gospel gladness bear;
Redeem the time;
its hours too swiftly fly.
The night draws nigh.


Come, labor on!
The enemy is watching night and day,
To sow the tares,
to snatch the seed away;
While we in sleep our duty
have forgot, He slumbered not.


Come, labor on!
Away with gloomy doubts
and faithless fear!
No arm so weak
but may do service here:
By feeblest agents
may our God fulfill
His righteous will.


Come, labor on!
No time for rest, till glows
the western sky,
Till the long shadows
o’er our pathway lie,
And a glad sound comes
with the setting sun,
“Well done, well done!”


Come, labor on!
The toil is pleasant,
the reward is sure;
Blessèd are those
who to the end endure;
How full their joy,
how deep their rest shall be,
O Lord, with Thee!
