Verse 1
Those who make their labour druggery
Do the Lord's work with idleness,
Those who make religion a cloak
Do not understand work and faith;
They seperate what God has joined:
Diligence with devotedness

Verse 2
The work we do are established
When it's done with the Spirit's zeal
God, who created days and nights
Decreed to rest on the seventh
As we work to redeem the time
Pleases our God whom we worship

Verse 3
We all rejoice if God gives us
Such labour with enthusiasm,
Because such work that He commands
Shall be offering for His glory;
Like saints above, as we worship,
It swells our fellowship of love
