Our Master toiled, a carpenter
Of busy Galilee;
He knew the weight of ardent tasks
And ofttimes, wearily,
He sought, apart, in earnest prayer
For strength, beneath his load of care.

He took a manly share of work,
No thoughtless shirker he.
From dawn to dusk, before his bench,
He labored faithfully.
He felt just pride in work well done
And found rest sweet, at setting sun.

His Father worked, and he rejoiced
That honest toil was his—
To whom was given grace to know
Divinest mysteries:
And shall not we find toiling good
Who serve in labor's brotherhood?
