Representative Text

1 Hear the Master calling now for lab’rers;
Who will go and work for Him today?
See, the fields are white unto the harvest;
Who will bear the golden sheaves away?

Refrain:
Who will go today, and bear the sheaves away?
Who will go today, and bear the sheaves away?
Who will go today?

2 Who will go and labor in life’s harvest,
Toiling in the shadow or the sun,
Faithful ever in the Master’s service,
Striving till the crown of life is won? [Refrain]

3 Who will go while yet the sun is shining,
Gleaming over valley, hill, and plain,
Coming home at ev’ning-time well laden
With the sheaves of precious golden grain? [Refrain]
