Work While It is Day

Food for Thought | Volume 21, Issue 4 | July – August, 2017.

While the sun is shining
Brightly in the sky,
Ere his rays declining
Tell that night is nigh;
Ere the shadows falling
Lengthen on our way,
Hark! a voice is calling,
“Work while it is day.”

Work for God in heaven,
Seek the Saviour’s face;
Plead to be forgiven,
Strive to grow in grace.
Watch against temptation,
Watch and ght and pray,
Each, in his own station,
Work while it is day.

Work, but not in sadness,
For your Lord above;
He will make it gladness
With his smile of love.
When the Lord returning,
Knocketh at the gate,
Let your lights be burning,
Be like those who wait.

Hymn 113 from
The Christadelphian Sunday School Hymn Book

“But wilt thou not know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
… For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:20,26.

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18
