If anyone knows the verses to this song, I would appreciate it very much.

Are you thinking about "We'll Work Til Jesus Comes"?

No, the chorus is

I'm gonna keep on working till He comes, till He comes.
There's nothing in this world worth turning around to see.
My eyes are on the prize that's awaiting my by and by.
and I'm gonna keep on working till He comes.

One verse starts out -- There are messages to be preached, there are souls to be reached

And one verse starts out -- There are songs to be sung, there are victories to be won

I just can't remember all of it.

Thanks for your help though.

Til He Comes
Words and music: Nancy Harmon © Lefevre - Sing Publishing Co. (BMI)

Lyrics:
I'm gonna keep on a workin'
Til he comes, til he comes
There's nothin' in this world
Worth tumin' around to see
My eyes are on the prize
That's awaitin' me by and by
and I'm a gonna keep on workin'
Til he comes, oh
Chorus:
(I'm gonna keep a workin') I'm gonna keep on a workin'
Til he comes, til he comes
(You know) There's nothin' in this world
Worth turnin' around to see
(My eyes are on the prize) My eyes are on the prize
That's awaitin' me by and by
(I'm gonna keep workin') And I'm a gonna keep on workin'
Til he comes, oh
There's work to be done (there's work to be done)
Lots of victories to be won
There's joys up the road (there's joys untold)
That have never yet been told
There are treasures that we need
In that land by faith I see
(I'm gonna keep workin') And I'm a gonna keep on workin'
Til he comes, oh
Repeat Chorus
There's a message to be preached (there's work to be preached)
Lots of souls that have to be reached
There's hungry to be fed (there's souls to feed)
Little children to be led
There's a river flowin' free
For a soul that's in need
(I'm gonna keep workin') And I'm a gonna keep on workin'
Til he comes, oh

Third verse:

There are songs from above
That are filled with joy and love
There are melodies of His peace
That make the turmoil cease
And there are gifts from above
That assure me of His love
And I'm gonna keep on singing 'til He comes

My family used to sing this and some friends of ours actually recorded this song. I still play and sing it on the piano!!

Hi, I am one of Nancy Harmon's Love Special Singers/Victory Voices and the words that are above from Lefevre are almost correct.
Except,
There's treasures a waiting me in that land by faith I see...

I just love every bit of this song, and of course awed by  its simplicity. Am sure any singing group can manage ministering through this song. And praise God it's happening in my new found family group The Conquerors Singers from Johannesburg, RSA.

We will surely make use of this classic on 6th July, 2013 as we present a full-day service to the congregants of Tembisa North SDA Church!!!

Stay blessed good people, and "keep on working till He (Jesus Christ) comes"!!!

Halleluia!!!
