1 Joyous bands are meeting all our ranks among,
Gathering in a harvest for the Lord;
Come, with hearty greeting for the old and young,
All who 've wrought according to his word.

Chorus:
Willing service, sacrifice or gift,
Daily offerings, while our prayers we lift,
These we give the Master, who from heaven came,
Now, we offer praises in his name.

2 Praise him for the presence of the King of kings
In the service which "his own" relieves;
For the joy and gladness willing service brings,
Off'ring which the Lord himself receives. [Chorus]

3 For the harvest golden, praise devout we give;
And a portion, with a joy supreme,
We bestow on others, bid them look and live,
For our Christ all nations shall redeem. [Chorus]
