Full Text

1 Faithful workers we in the fields of the Lord,
Sowing precious seed, we’re sowing precious seed;
First will come the blade, then the grain in the ear,
Ready for his garners when he shall appear.

Refrain:
We’re faithful lab’rers in the fields of the Lord,
Toiling away,
Day after day;
When Jesus comes again,
And we shall meet him then,
His “well done” will be our blest reward.

2 Anxiously we watch o’er the young, tender plant,
Watering the soil, while watering the soil;
Plucking out the weeds that their fair growth would stay,
Lifting drooping heads to the sun’s warming ray. [Refrain]

3 When his harvest comes, we his presence shall seek,
Bringing in the sheaves, while bringing in the sheaves;
He’ll accept our efforts, tho’ poor they may be,
And with all the blest we his glory shall see. [Refrain]
