Representative Text

1 Cast thy bread upon the waters,
Find it after many days;
Jesus' toiling sons and daughters,
Loud shall sing their harvest praise.

Refrain:
God's own children gladly singing,
Singing songs of harvest home;
Golden sheaves in triumph bringing,
Jesus bids us welcome home.

2 Sow in faith, on God depending,
Ev'n in hardest, poorest soil;
Patient care and labor spending,
God will recompense the toil. [Refrain]

3 Sow in faith, nor ever weary,
Hoping on, and fainting not,
Though the day be dark and dreary,
Reaping soon shall be thy lot. [Refrain]

4 Soon shall cease the time of sowing,
Soon the waiting days be o'er,
Plenteous harvest richly growing,
For God's glory, evermore. [Refrain]

5 Golden sheaves in triumph bringing,
Jesus' reapers hasten home!
Harvest welcome gladly singing,
Jesus meets them as they come. [Refrain]
