16223. We Are Working

1 We are work­ing for the king­dom
That shall ne­ver, ne­ver end,
As we jour­ney thro’ this world of strife and sin,
Pointing lost ones to a Sav­ior,
Christ their best and true­st friend,
That the crown of life eter­nal they may win.

We are work­ing, ev­er work­ing,
For the king­dom of the Sav­ior we adore;
We are work­ing, ev­er work­ing,
And we’ll praise His glo­ri­ous name for­ev­er­more!

2 We are work­ing, watch­ing, pray­ing,
Whether bright or dark the way,
Trusting Him who gave His life our souls to save;
And we’ll press with cour­age onward,
Serving Him from day to day,
Till we reach that bliss­ful home be­yond the grave. [Refrain]

3 All our toils will be for­got­ten
When our Sav­ior we shall greet,
In that bright, eter­nal ci­ty built above;
And with those we’ve helped to res­cue,
Endless prais­es we’ll re­peat,
Ever shar­ing in the full­ness of His love. [Refrain]
