Representative Text

1 The fields are white, ‘tis harvest time,
But laborers are few,
The Lord unto his service calls
The willing and the true.

Refrain:
Hear ye the call, who will reply?
“Send me, O master, here am I.”
Hear ye the call, who will reply?
“Send me, O master, here am I.”

2 Faint heart, no longer idly stand,
Nor yet an hour delay,
The gath’ring clouds a storm foretells,
Arise, go work today! [Refrain]

3 Wait not for other hands to do
The service of the Lord;
“To every man his work” is given,
And each receives reward. [Refrain]
