Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Jesus, we thy lambs would be

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.

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]
