The Faith That Saves The Soul

The faith that saves the soul
Is faith that works by love;
Let faith and love thy work control,
And thy salvation prove.

Thy Saviour work’d for thee,
With often weary brow;
His willing, constant worker be,
For Him to labour now.

The labourers are few
Who toil amid the heat,
Unto their toiling Master true,
And learning at His feet.

Work with a grateful heart:
Work while the millions play:
Ere the bright hours of light depart,
And night shall follow day.

Work!-work for Him is blest;
Work as a favoured son;
Work till He gives thee heavenly rest,
And His own sweet “Well done!”
