Who Toiled For Christ Through Suffering


Who toiled for Christ through suffering sore,
And meekly grief and anguish bore;
And in their service steadfast strove,
To serve the Master Whom they love,–
Now rest in His eternal peace,
Through ages that shall never cease.

Who toil as they, and faithful prove
The servants of the Lord they love,
When toil is o’er and suffering past,
Enter the bliss of heaven at last,–
And rest in His eternal peace,
Through ages that shall never cease.
