Every hour for Jesus! shall my motto be,
There is plenty of work we may do;
We may all keep busy till the Lord we see,
Till He comes for His faithful few.
Every hour for the Lord,
Every hour for the Lord let us spend;
Every hour for Jesus till He comes again,
When the labor of life shall end.
Every hour for Jesus! We must work and pray,
We should never be slothful or tire;
For the time is coming, so His Word doth say,
When our work shall be tried by fire.
Every hour for Jesus! and whate’er I do,
I must have His approval on me;
If I do heart service with the Lord in view,
He will bless me and keep me free.
Every hour for Jesus! There is work for all,
Spend your time in His service alone;
Be ye ready, waiting for His every call,
Soon He’ll say, “ ’Tis enough, come home.”
