1 O sing to the Savior, loud anthems employ!
He came our salvation to bring;
Be ready to serve Him with ardor and joy,
And gather the sheaves for our King.
Then gather the sheaves
For daylight soon leaves,
The moments are flying on pinions so fleet;
With Jesus we’ll rest,
And lay down our sheaves at His feet.
2 The Master has bro’t us rich gifts from above,
No sorrow nor toil would He spare;
Then let us draw near Him with hearts full of love,
And labor with patience and prayer. [Refrain]
3 The harvest is ready, but reapers are few,
Now cheerfully, joyfully go;
We’ll carry our sheaves thro’ the bright, pearly gate,
Where Jesus our crowns will bestow. [Refrain]
