Beautiful Gleanings Bring

Representative Text

1. Go, in early morning, into the harvest white,
Sing a song of gladness, labor with all your might;
Let the words of Jesus, over the nation ring,
With the coming evening, beautiful gleanings bring.

See the beautiful harvest white!
Go and labor with all your might;
Let your anthems of gladness ring,
Go and beautiful gleanings bring!

2 For the faint and weary, carry a smile of cheer,
With the sad and dreary, weeping an anxious tear;
To the heart that's aching, under a load of care,
Lend a hand of comfort, cover its ailings there. [Refrain]

3 In the name of Jesus, gather the sheaves today,
Read the precious promise, wages He you will pay;
Go with great rejoicing, gleaning from fields of sin,
Thrust thy glowing sickle, bringing the harvest in. [Refrain]
