Put Your Shoulder to the Wheel

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 252

1. The world has need of willing men Who wear the worker’s seal. Come, help the good work move along; Put your shoulder to the wheel.

Put your shoulder to the wheel; push along, Do your duty with a heart full of song, We all have work; let no one shirk. Put your shoulder to the wheel.

2. The Church has need of helping hands, And hearts that know and feel. The work to do is here for you; Put your shoulder to the wheel.

Put your shoulder to the wheel; push along, Do your duty with a heart full of song, We all have work; let no one shirk. Put your shoulder to the wheel.

3. Then don’t stand idly looking on; The fight with sin is real. It will be long but must go on; Put your shoulder to the wheel.

Put your shoulder to the wheel; push along, Do your duty with a heart full of song, We all have work; let no one shirk. Put your shoulder to the wheel.

4. Then work and watch and fight and pray With all your might and zeal. Push ev’ry worthy work along; Put your shoulder to the wheel.

Put your shoulder to the wheel; push along, Do your duty with a heart full of song, We all have work; let no one shirk. Put your shoulder to the wheel.
