(Duett)
All around is bright and fair
Chorus:
While we work for the Lord;

(Duett)
Joy and peace are ev’ry where
Chorus:
While we work for the Lord;

(Solo)
O’er the mountains and the vales,
Softly sigh the pleasant gales,
(Duett)
Breathing nature’s hymns of gladness
Chorus:
While we work for the Lord.
All around is bright and fair
Joy and peace are ev’ry where
Let our hearts be free from care
While we work for the Lord

(Duett)
Every face with pleasure beams
Chorus:
While we work for the Lord;
(Duett)

Every heart with rapture teems
Chorus:
While we work for the Lord;
(Solo)
All the shades of sorrow fly,
Years will never dim the sky,
(Duett)
Light and gladness shine around us
Chorus:
(Duett)
Nearer seem those realms above
Chorus:
While we work for the Lord;
(Duett)
Dearer seems our Saviour’s love
Chorus:
While we work for the Lord;
(Solo)
Let us raise a grateful voice,
And with earnest hearts rejoice,
(Duett)
For the happiness around us,
Chorus:
