Representative Text

1 Take down the rusty sickle,
The day is on the wane,
And only left a little while
To gather in the grain.

Refrain:
‘Tis harvest time
‘Tis harvest time,
Take down the rusty sickle and gather in the golden grain,
‘Tis harvest time,
‘Tis harvest time,
Take down the rusty sickle and gather in the grain.

2 Take down the rusty sickle,
The harvest waits for you,
The fields are ripe for many, yet
The laborers are few. [Refrain]

3 Take down the rusty sickle,
The Lord will make you strong
And crown you with a golden sheaf,
To sing the harvest song. [Refrain]
