Why Leave Until Tomorrow

Why leave until tomorrow
The work that calls today,
When life is but a shadow
That soon will pass away?

Our promised time is now;
Today our Lord commands
to labor in His vineyard,
To labor in His vineyard,
To labor in His vineyard
With ready, willing hands.

Why waste the precious moments
That, lost, will ne’er return?
Thy boast we of tomorrow?
Our lamp may cease to burn. [Chorus]

Today our path of duty
Is clearly, plainly shone
The future, in God’s keeping,
To us cannot be known. [Chorus]

Today be up and doing;
Today our skies are bright;
Go rescue those that perish,
And work with all our might. [Chorus]
