Holiness in Work Life - Series (10)


Tune: Sandys

('Teach me, my God and King')

Colossians 3 v.22-25 and 4 v.1


Servants (employees) in all things do

Obey your masters (employers) true

No with eye-service, only when

They see you working then


But to please men not be

You aim, but the Lord, see

Work in singleness of heart, free

Serve Him here sincerely


And whatsoe'er you do

Do it heartily, true

As to the Lord, not to people

For He does see hearts all


And know that of the Lord

We shall receive, His word

Says [thus] the reward inheriting

The good He does us bring


For you the Lord Christ serve

And wrong deeds they deserve

Recompence, the Lord impartial

He shall, righteous, judge all


Masters (employers) give unto your

Servants (employees) now from your store

That which ish just, equal, knowing

Your Master, Lord, is King
