Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Harvest Song

Full Text

1 Look the harvest-field is teeming
With the rich and ripened grain;
Wide it spreads before us,
Bright the sky is o'er us;
In the sunlight, golden gleaming,
Heaving like the restless man,
"Reapers are needed,"
Resounds o'er hill and plain.

Rouse ye, then, and to the fields away, (to the fields away,)
Go labor for the master while you may; (Master while you may;)
Lo! He is calling, night is falling,
Hasten to obey,
For reapers are needed today.

2 In the markets and the byways,
Whiling precious hours away,
Many stand complaining,
idle still remaining,
Loit'ring in the dusty highways,
Hearing not the Master say:
"Reapers are needed,
O who will work today?" [Chorus]

3 Hear ye not the faithful singing
Of the labor and the yield?
Rouse ye, then, O sleepers,
Join the happy reapers;
To the wind your sorrows flinging,
Patiently the sickle wield:
"Reapers are needed,
Awake, and to the field!" [Chorus]
