The world's harvest

Representative Text

1 Servants of Jesus, the day is at hand,
Fields for our labor invitingly stand;
Mark ye the signals, they widely diffuse
Tokens of the coming harvest, joyful the news.

Chorus:
Pray for help, Christian, pray, pray, pray,
Yes, pray for help in the fields white today;
Gather the sheaves, bring the world's harvest home,
Glorious and blessed harvest, come, Saviour, come.

2 Work is abundant, the promise is great,
Few are the reapers, in sadness they wait;
Patiently toiling, yet daily they cry,
Pray ye that our Lord and Master, reapers supply. [Chorus]

3 Men who are faithful are fainting today,
Worn with their labors, they fall by the way;
Fill ye the ranks, and with heart and with hand
Gather in the blessed harvest, Christ gives command. [Chorus]

4 Hasten the time when the reapers shall sing,
And with rejoicing, their sheaves homeward bring;
Saints with the angels together shall meet:
Glorious and blessed meeting round Jesus' feet. [Chorus]
