Though The Work Of Life Be Lowly


Though the work of life be lowly,
Let me true and faithful be;
This the thought that makes it holy-
Christ has set the task for me.

Refrain
He has set the task for me!
He has set the task for me!
This the thought that makes it holy-
Christ has set the task for me!

Hush, O heart, thy wild ambition!
Toil, O hands, in service free!
Blest indeed is my condition-
Christ has set the task for me. [Refrain]

Christ, I know, will not forget me
When at length the evening falls;
From the place where He has set me
I will answer when He calls. [Refrain]
