We Have Toiled In Many Vineyards


We have toiled in many vineyards,
We have toiled through many a day,
Toiled for thee, O blessed Jesus,
Worn for thee our strength away.

Refrain:
And we still will work for Jesus,
Work for him has blessed pay;
We will ever work for Jesus,
Work for him our lives away.

We have toiled through storm and sunshine,
Summer’s heat, and winter’s cold;
Toil is sweet in youth’s bright morning,
Sweet when men are growing old. [Refrain]

We have toiled in human gardens,
Digging, sowing, pruning, too,
Praying for the dew and sunshine,
On the work we found to do. [Refrain]

Lo! the garden blooms with flowers,
Fragrance fills the blessed air;
Living, dying, precious brethren,
Toil for Jesus everywhere. [Refrain]
