    Verse 1
    Jesus Lord, how happy we are
    That we are Thine own disciples,
    We, who spend all our life
    In service to God and to man,
    We spend the day in good service
    And use the night in prayer

    Verse 2
    We have no time to be lazy
    Or moments to spend idly by;
    We are pressing forward;
    There's no weakness of the body
    For those who serve and work for Thee,
    Those who know Thee alone

    Verse 3
    Times and seasons pass swiftly by
    The hours are too small for our use;
    To sing Thy wondrous praise
    The joyful moments flee away;
    We want to join the heav'nly host
    To sing eternally

    Verse 4
    We love, always, to sing Thy praise
    With all the host of heav'n above
    The shining white robed throng
    That Holy, Holy, Holy sing
    To sing around the throne of God
    The everlasting song
