1. The world has need of willing menWho wear the worker’s seal.Come, help the good work move along;Put your shoulder to the wheel.
[Chorus]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.
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.
4. Then work and watch and fight and prayWith all your might and zeal.Push ev’ry worthy work along;Put your shoulder to the wheel.
