1 Hear the call for reapers,
Ringing far and near,
Rouse, ye idle sleepers,
Harvest time is here;
Fields today are bending
With the ripened grain,
And the Lord for reapers
Calleth long in vain.

So send I you!
So send I you
For e’en as the Father hath sent me,
So send I you!
This is the Master’s commission,
Unto your trust be true!
“For e’en as the Father hath sent me,
So send I you.”

2 In the market places
Will ye longer stand,
While the golden harvest
Wastes on ev’ry hand?
Heed the Lord’s commission,
Go where’er he sends;
For the world’s salvation
Upon us depends. [Refrain]

3 In the steps of Jesus
Follow day by day,
Seeking for the lost ones
Out on life’s highway;
Blood-bought souls are dying,
Thrust the sickle in,
For the final harvest
Precious sheaves to win. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
