Representative Text

1 Haste, brother, haste! for the Master is calling,
Wait not till night shades around thee are falling;
Go while the sun in his beauty is shining;
Go to the vineyard and cease your repining.

Chorus:
Haste, brother, haste! arise from thy slumber,
The toilers are few, be thou one of their number.

2 Go in the strength of the Lord, who hath spoken;
His word of promise was never yet broken;
Go while the morning-bells sweetly are chiming,
Go where the reapers are golden sheaves binding. [Chorus]

3 Haste, brother, haste! for the moments are fleeting,
Go join the harvesters, share in their greeting;
Soon will the shout of the reapers be ringing,
As they’re returning, some precious sheaves bringing. [Chorus]

Coda:
Be thou one, be thou one, be thou one of their number;
The toilers are few, be thou one of their number. [Chorus]
