No 4.          Go Work in My Vineyard.

Go Work in My Vineyard-1.png
Go Work in My Vineyard-2.png
Go work in My vineyard, I claim thee as Mine,      Go work in My vineyard ;" oh, work while 'tis day !
With blood did I buy thee and all that is thine—       The bright hours of sunshine are hastening away,
Thy time and thy talents, thy loftiest powers,             And night's gloomy shadows are gathering fast; 
Thy warmest aff'ections, thy sunniest hours.              Then the time for our labour will ever be past.
I willingly yielded My kingdom for thee,                      Begin in the morning and toil all the day;
The song of archangels—to hang on the tree ;           Thy strength I'll supply, and thy wages I'll pay
In pain and temptation, in anguish and shame,           And blessed, thrice blessed, the diligent few,
I paid thy full ransom ; My purchase I claim.               Who finish the labour I've given them to do.
