Representative Text

1 Go labor in the harvest field,
Bringing the golden sheaves;
Return with an abundant yield,
Bringing the golden sheaves.

Refrain:
Bringing the golden sheaves,
Bringing the golden sheaves,
Go labor in the harvest field,
Bringing the golden sheaves.

2 Think not of ease, but labor on,
Bringing the golden sheaves;
And toil till setting of the sun,
Bringing the golden sheaves. [Refrain]

3 The evening calls the reapers home,
Bringing the golden sheaves;
And bearing precious fruit they come,
Bringing the golden sheaves. [Refrain]

4 The saints will gather by and by,
Bringing the golden sheaves;
With Jesus in the home on high,
Bringing the golden sheaves. [Refrain]
