Laborers of Christ, Arise

Tune: Ahira. S.M.

Verse 1:
Laborers of Christ arise,
And gird you for the toil;
The dew of promise from the skies
Already cheers the soil.

Verse 2:
Go where the sick recline,
Where mourning hearts deplore;
And where the sons of sorrow pine,
Dispense your hallowed lore.

Verse 3:
Be faith, which looks above,
With pray’r, your constant guest.
And wrap the Saviour’s changeless love
A mantle round your breast.

Verse 4:
So shall you share the wealth
That earth may ne’er despoil,
And the blest gospel’s saving health
Repay your arduous toil.

Mrs. L.H. Sigourney/H.W. Greatorex
