Representative Text

1 Jesus is calling for workers today,
Are you now ready the call to obey;
Ready and willing just now to reply,
While he is calling, “Dear Lord, here am I.”

Great is the harvest, but the laborers are few;
Work in abundance very one find to do;
While he is calling, haste to reply,
“Ready for service, dear Lord, here am I.”

2 Lost ones are straying in darkness and sin,
Jesus would have us to gather them in;
While to the burdened and sorrowing heart,
In his dear name we may comfort impart. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ oft your efforts seem fruitless and vain,
Yonder in heaven all motives are plain;
What here below seems a failure complete,
There may prove treasure eternal and sweet. [Refrain]

4 Be not discouraged nor think the day long,
Soon we shall join in the reaper’s glad song;
Soon with rejoicing our trophies shall bring,
Laying them down at the feet of our King. [Refrain]
