I am working in the vineyard--
In the vineyard of the LORD.
He will give me all he's promised.
He will always keep his word.

Are you working in the vineyard?
In the vineyard of the LORD?
He will gie you all he's promised.
He will always keep his word.

We can't earn the things we're getting
In the vineyard of the LORD.
He is good and kind and gracious.
He will always keep his word.

For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner  
who went out early in the morning 
to hire laborers for his vineyard. 
(Matthew 20:1 ESV)

Great poem, Jim.

We are so much like little children, thinking we have done so much for God when in reality, he just rewards us for wanting to please him.
