Jesus, we thy lambs would be

Author: C. A. Marvin
Published in 21 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesus, we Thy lambs would be,
Humble we would follow Thee,
Waiting for the joyful day,
When all care will pass away.

Refrain:
When the reaping time shall come,
And angels shout the harvest home,
When the reaping time shall come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

2 Now the field with grain is white,
Now the day is dawning bright—
Brighter far the sky will be,
When our Master we shall see. [Refrain]

3 May we wait, and watch, and pray,
For the coming of that day,
When the wheat shall sifted be,
And the chaff be driv’n from Thee. [Refrain]
