All who love and serve your city, all who
bear its daily stress, all who cry for
peace and justice, all who curse and all who bless:
In your day of wealth and plenty, wasted
work and wasted play, call to mind the
word of Jesus, "You must work while it is day."
For all days are days of judgement, and the
Lord is waiting still, drawing near a
world that spurns him, offering peace from Calvary's hill.
Risen Lord, shall yet the city be the
city of despair? Come today, our
judge, our glory. Be its name "The Lord is there!"
