88. The Call for Reapers

1 Far and near the fields are teeming
With the waves of ripened grain;
Far and near their gold is gleaming
O'er the sunny slope and plain.

Refrain:
Lord of harvest, send forth reapers!
Hear us, Lord, to you we cry;
Send them now the sheaves to gather,
Ere the harvest time pass by.

2 Send them forth with morn's first beaming,
Send them in the noontide's glare;
When the sun's last rays are gleaming,
Bid them gather ev'rywhere. [Refrain]

3 O you whom the Lord is sending,
Gather now the sheaves of gold;
Heav'nward then at evening wending,
You shall come with joy untold. [Refrain]
