1 Oh, we are busy workers in the vineyard of the Lord;
Our fruit will all be gathered by and by.
The angels will come reaping for the storehouse up above;
The angels will come reaping by and by,
The angels will come reaping by and by.

2 How sweet will be the harvest when with Jesus we’ll sit down!
How sweet will be the harvest by and by!
When gathered in his garner all our golden fruit we see,
The reapers will be singing by and by,
The reapers will be singing by and by.

3 Whatever we are sowing, ‘tis the same we’ll also reap;
We’ll hear our Saviour’s welcome by and by.
Well done, ye faithful servants; enter now into my joy,
Will be the Saviour’s welcome by and come,
Will be the Saviour’s welcome by and come.
