1 Day by day the Lord to you is saying,
Go ye forth and gather in the grain,—
Go and work while yet the sun is shining,
Go and glean o’er hill and plain.

Go ye and gather, gather in the grain,
Precious golden grain;
Go ye and gather,
Over hill and plain.

2 Day by day the Lord will surely help you,
Trusting Him you cannot toil in vain;
Go ye forth, His gracious word obeying,
Bring to Him your sheaves of grain. [Refrain]

3 Haste ye now, and glean among the reapers,
Work for Him who gave His life for you;
Day by day be faithful in His service,
He your strength will still renew. [Refrain]
