Go, Labor On

  1. Go, labor on: spend and be spent,
    your joy to do the Father’s will;
    it is the way the Master went;
    should not the servant tread it still?
  2. Go, labor on: ’tis not for naught;
    your earthly loss is heav’nly gain;
    men heed you, love you, praise you not;
    the Master praises—what are men?
  3. Go, labor on: enough while here
    if he should praise you, if he deign
    your willing heart to mark and cheer;
    no toil for him shall be in vain.
  4. Go, labor on while it is day:
    the world’s dark night is hast’ning on.
    Speed, speed your work, cast sloth away;
    it is not thus that souls are won.
  5. Toil on, faint not, keep watch and pray;
    be wise the erring soul to win;
    go forth into the world’s highway,
    compel the wand’rer to come in.
  6. Toil on, and in your toil rejoice;
    for toil comes rest, for exile home;
    soon shall you hear the Bridegroom’s voice,
    the midnight peal, “Behold, I come.”
