Ruth The Gleaner

Author: Julia H. Johnston Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #8092 Meter: 7.6.7.6.7.6 D Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal First Line: Long ago to Bethlehem Refrain First Line: See the reapers bending low Lyrics: 1 Long ago to Bethlehem, From afar returning, Came Naomi, sore bereaved, For the homeland yearning. Ruth, her daughter, clave to her, Idol gods forsaking; Lo, she seeks the harvest field, As the day is breaking. Refrain: See the reapers bending low, See the wheat sheaves leaning; See the Moabitess go, Gleaning, gleaning, gleaning. 2 Happy Ruth with ready hands, Gleans along the borders, Let some handfuls fall for her, Hear the master’s orders. Sweet, unselfish, trustful one, When the shadows lengthen, Rich reward awaiteth thee, Faith and hope to strengthen. [Refrain] 3 Like this gleaner may we be, Faithful in our calling; Other hands may bind the sheaves Where the wheat is falling. But the gleaners have their place, Precious handfuls saving, In the golden harvest fields, Where the grain is waving. [Refrain] Languages: English Tune Title: EMBARCADERO
