Representative Text

1 Go out and gather the golden grain,
The world is your harvest field;
Your toil for Jesus will not be vain
For He will the increase yield.

Refrain:
Gather, gather,
Gather in the golden grain;
Gather, gather,
Gather in the golden grain.

2 Go lift the soul from the haunts of sin,
The treasures of grace display;
Your mission here is to work and win,
Go show to the lost the way. [Refrain]

3 Go find some pearl on the ocean strand,
The shell may be rough and brown,
But polished by the dear Master’s hand,
‘Twill shine in his jewel’d crown. [Refrain]
