Glowing in the sunlight

Full Text

1 Glowing in the sunlight, waving in the breeze,
Harvester, look up, and see the fertile plain;
Enter in and labor, sit no more at ease,
Gather the beautiful golden grain.

Beautiful golden grain, beautiful golden grain,
Bending on the hillside, stretching o’er the plain;
See the harvest waiting, come and gather in
All the beautiful golden grain.

2 Up, and with the morning hasten to the field;
Harvester, awake, and speed thee on amain;
Every precious moment rich reward will yield,
Gath’ring the beautiful golden grain. [Refrain]

3 Go and help the toilers, cheer them on their way;
Harvesters for God, they reap eternal gain;
Ere the dusky shadows close the weary day,
Gather the beautiful golden grain. [Refrain]

4 When at last the angels shout the “Harvest Home,”
Reapers one and all shall catch the glad refrain;
All the faithful workers joyfully will come,
Laden with beautiful golden grain. [Refrain]
