53. Your Lord Hath Need of You

1 Hark! O hark! a call for workers,
Coming from the fields today;
Who will now with joy and gladness,
Haste the summons to obey?

Fields are white, the harvest waiting,
But the laborers are few:
Ye who still outside are standing,
Come, your Lord hath need of you.

2 All around us souls are dying,
All around for help they cry;
Ye who know the way to heaven,
Will you idly pass them by? [Refrain]

3 Haste to gather sheaves for Jesus,
Let no other take your crown,
Win His word of commendation,
When all burdens are laid down. [Refrain]

4 Soon will come the Lord of harvest,
Rich reward His own to bring;
O what joy ‘twill be to greet Him,
If we’ve truly served our King. [Refrain]
