Representative Text

1 Far and near the fields are golden,
With their wealth of ripened grain,
Far and near o’er hill and valley,
Comes the oft repeated strain.

Chorus:
For the fields are white to harvest,
But the laborers are few,
Who will heed the call to service,
There is work for all to do.

2 Far and near the call is sounding,
Who will go and work today,
Souls are perishing around us,
Who will now the call obey. [Chorus]

3 Precious jewels for His kingdom,
Go and gather while you may,
Soon the golden sun will vanish,
Soon will come the close of day. [Chorus]
