Up And Onward Christian Workers


Up and onward, Christian workers,
Life is fleeting, do not stray;
Great the harvest, few the toilers,
Up and onward, haste away!

Refrain
Haste away, then, Christian workers,
Hear the deep, despairing call;
Go and rescue those that perish,
Lend a helping hand to all.

Where the reapers bear their burdens
In the toil and heat of day,
Where the golden sheaves are waving,
Up and onward, haste away! [Refrain]

Where the conflict fiercely rages
On the battlefield today,
With our banner, shield and buckler,
Up and onward, haste away! [Refrain]

Consecrated to the service
Of our Savior and our Lord;
Ever faithful, true and earnest,
We shall gain the great reward. [Refrain]
