502. Saints of God, the Dawn is Brightening

1 Saints of God, the dawn is bright'ning,
Token of our coming Lord:
O’er the earth the field is whit'ning;
Louder rings the Master’s word:
Pray for reapers, Pray for reapers
In the harvest of the Lord!

2 Now, O Lord, fulfil Thy pleasure,
Breathe upon Thy chosen band,
And with Pentecostal measure
Send forth reapers o’er our land,
Faithful reapers, Faithful reapers,
Gath'ring sheaves for Thy right hand.

3 Soon shall end the time of weeping,
Soon the reaping time will come,
Heav'n and earth together keeping
God’s eternal Harvest-home.
Saints and angels, Saints and angels,
Shout the world’s great Harvest-home.
