We Love Our Work
Song for Relief Society Choirs.
Sung to the tune of “I know that my Redeemer lives,” or,
“Praise ye the Lord, ‘tis good to raise.”
By M.E. Abel
We love our work, we want to live
That Father’s blessings we’ll receive.
Help us to cleanse our hearts from sin,
That Thy pure love may dwell therein.
O, Father, grant us strength and power;
Our mission needs Thee every hour.
Help us in what we want to do,
That to our trust we may prove true.
We want to live our love to show
To father’s children here below.
We want to comfort in distress,
We want to give all happiness.
We want to leave no stone unturned;
We want our lesson here well learned;
We want to point to Heaven’s goal,
To help in saving every soul.
We want to show our bishops all,
We’re minute women at their call;
We want no more to speak unkind,
But good in others quickly find.
We want our lives at home, abroad,
To show that we are Saints of God,
That our good works may ever bring
Glory and praise to Christ our King.
