Representative Text

1 Go forth to the field of the harvest,
The Master is calling for thee;
The fields are all white for the reaping,
And golden the harvest will be.

Refrain:
Go forth, go forth,
Go forth to the vineyard today,
The fields are all white for the harvest,
Go forth to the vineyard today.

2 Go forth with a smile for the weary,
Go forth with a word for the sad;
A sweet song of hope for the mourner,
An anthem of peace for the glad. [Refrain]

3 Go forth with a heart true and tender,
And scatter the sunshine to all;
The Lord will speak peace in the valley,
When shadows around thee shall fall. [Refrain]

4 Go forth to the field of the harvest,
Go forth to the vineyard today;
For night comes apace in the valley,
And harvest-time passeth away. [Refrain]
