1 Oh! the sowing time seems weary
And full oft the workers cry,
To the Lord who rules the harvest,
For the reaping by and by.
What a reaping, reaping,
What a reaping it will be by and by.
Every sorrow we have known,
Every tear that we have sown,
What a reaping it will be by and by!
2 In the sorrow and the suffering,
When each breath is but a sigh;
Though we sow in tears, remember
There’s a reaping by and by. [Refrain]
3 When our hearts are strained to breaking,
Comfort other sufferers nigh;
And our harvest will be doubled
In the reaping by and by. [Refrain]
4 For the love of Christ is flowing
In a stream that’s never dry;
He will water all our sowing,
For the reaping by and by. [Refrain]
