Work while the world sleeps
Work for Jesus and work well,
And in His name the darkness dispel.
In worldly cares don’t grow dull,
Lest your praise to God go lull.
The world and its lust is fading away,
Be brave and carry your cross everyday.
For most of mankind in ignorance sleeps,
Unaware of the evil that carefully seeps.
Don’t be drowsy in drunkenness or grief,
Lest your treasure gets stolen by the thief.
Because among God’s chosen you number,
Keep away from all worthless slumber.
And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does the will of God remains forever. (1 John 2:17)
