1 O bring your best songs to our Savior today,
His love is our sun and our shield;
With joy let us go where he beckons the way,
And gather bright sheaves in his field.

Refrain:
The glittering sheaves, O, gather them in!
Precious their cost,
Let none be lost;
Labor and sing till the evening bells ring,
And bring all the golden sheaves in.

2 The Master toiled early and late for us all,
Nor tho’t of his own weary feet;
O let us in gratitude answer his call,
And work for his recompense sweet. [Refrain]

3 The harvest is ripe and the hour grows late,
O haste ere the darkness comes down!
Let each take a sheaf to the beautiful gate,
And Jesus will give us a crown. [Refrain]
