1 In happy springtime forth we go,
With hoping hearts the seeds to sow,
And ask the earth so kind and warm,
To keep them safe from ev’ry harm.

Let christian workers hear the call,
‘Een now He’s sounding forth to all,
The Saviour bids us garner in
The sheaves of good from fields of sin.

2 The hours and days go flitting by,
The rays of sun are drawing nigh,
The smiling buds are peeping out,
All nature lifts a thankful shout. [Refrain]

3 Behold how bright the fields appear,
‘Neath summer sun which now is here,
The fruit hangs heavy ev’rywhere,
That all may in its bounties share. [Refrain]

4 The autumn leaves have come at last,
The spring and summertime have past,
The gleaner’s songs are sounding sweet,
They separate the tares from wheat. [Refrain]
