LYRICS

Working with Joy, working with joy!
We will work until His coming (3x)
we will go on working with joy.

When the King comes in His glory
we will be there to meet Him

In the twinkling of eye
like a thief in the night

Someday soon the sky will break open with joy

I’m going home when the trumpets resound

In the meantime we’ll be working
with joy.
We will not be afraid
no we will not be ashamed to follow.

No more fear of death
everlasting breath of life.

That will be glory for me.

We will work until His coming
we will go on working with joy.
