10094. Go Work, For The Harvest Is Near

1 Go work, for the harvest is near,
Go work, for the laborers are few;
Soon Jesus our master in joy will appear,
With His followers faithful and true.

Refrain:
We shall rest, we shall rest,
We shall rest on that beautiful shore;
We shall rest, we shall rest,
We shall rest on that beautiful shore.

2 The poor and the needy may come,
The lame, and the halt and the blind,
And all who are seeking a heavenly home,
The pearl of salvation may find. [Refrain]

3 Bright beautiful palms we shall bear,
With loved ones who’ve passed on before;
And crowns of rejoicing we ever shall wear,
On the beautiful, beautiful shore. [Refrain]
