Bringing in the Sheaves

Representative Text

SOWING in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eves;
Waiting for the harvest and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Refrain:
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

2 Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
Fearing neither clouds nor winter’s chilling breeze,
By and by the harvest and the labour ended,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

3 Go then, though with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Though the lass sustained our spirit often grieves;
When our labour’s over, he will bid us welcome;
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
