1. If my Savior swung a hammer,
if my Savior swung a hammer,
if my Savior swung a hammer,
then I’ll swing mine; I’ll labor on.

Labor on! Labor on!
Until God’s kingdom comes,
labor on!

2. Oh, if Jesus fed the hungry,
oh, if Jesus fed the hungry,
oh, if Jesus fed the hungry,
let the hungry eat, let them labor on.

3. If my Jesus turned the tables,
if my Jesus turned the tables,
if my Jesus turned the tables,
let’s turn the tide, let’s labor on.

4. If my Savior took the hammer,
if my Savior took the hammer,
if my Savior took the hammer,
I’ll bear my cross. I’ll labor on.

5. Jesus died on a Friday.
Jesus died on a Friday.
Jesus died on a Friday.
Sunday he rose, so I’ll labor on.
