1 Let me die in the harness
When my work on earth is done;
Let me toil for the Master
Till the setting of the sun;
With armor on and girded
I’ll await the order giv’n:

Refrain:
“Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,”
Go to meet your Lord in heav’n.

2 Let me die in the harness,
Never idly loit’ring here;
Fields are white for the harvest;
Haste, ye reapers, never fear;
Go, gather sheaves all golden,
Ere the midnight cry is giv’n: [Refrain]

3 Let me die in the harness,
Valiant soldier of the cross;
Ever faithful to duty,
Lest my Captain suffer loss;
A starry crown of glory
To the victor will be giv’n: [Refrain]
