CAC GHB 739 : COME LABOUR ON

Share

Hymn 739:

Come, labour on!
Who dares stand idle on the harvest

Plain,

While all around us waves the

golden grain?
And to each servant does the

Master say

“Go work today.”

Come labour on!

Claim the high calling Angel

Cannot share,

 To young and old the

Gospel-gladness bear;

Redeem the time: its hours

Too swiftly fly,

The night draws nigh

Come labour 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 labour on!
Away with gloomy doubts and

faithless fear!
No arm so weak but may do

service here, 

By feeblest agents may our God fulfil

His righteous will.

Come labour 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,

Servants, well done.

Come, labour on!

The toil is pleasant, the reward is sure,

Blessed are those who to the end

Endure;

How full their joy, how deep their

Rest shall be,

O Lord, with thee!
