Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

18. Where Are the Harvesters?

1 Lo! the ripen’d grain is waving,
Ready for the harvest hands;
Calling loudly for more lab’rers,
See! the blessed Master stands.

Chorus:
Who is ready for the harvest?
Who will work for dying souls today?
Who will speak for the blessed Master?
Who will labor, watch, and pray?

2 Who is ready to obey Him?
Who, responsive to His word,
Now will go into the harvest,
Glad to labor for their Lord? [Chorus]

3 Workers, see, your Lord is standing,
Looking with benignant smile;
Watching all your faithful labors,
Giving you good cheer the while! [Chorus]

4 Say, is not the work a pleasure?
Is not toil a present joy?
Is not labor rest, when Jesus
Smiles upon your blest employ? [Chorus]

5 Who can tell the wealth of blessing,
Crowning that rich “harvest-home,”
When within the heavenly portals,
All the faithful lab’rers come? [Chorus]

6 O, the rapture!, O, the glory!
O, the wondrous feast of love!
When the sowers and the reapers
Gather in their house above. [Chorus]
