Full Text

1 The golden grain is gleaming, you should haste away,
The call for reapers is a call for you,
Go forth with Christ to labor, do not long delay
His call is ringing: “On to harvest!”

Refrain:
On to harvest while ‘tis day,
On to harvest, work and pray;
The Master calls for you,
Go forth with heart so true
And gather for Him the golden grain.

2 While pearls of dew yet sparkle in the early morn,
With sharpened sickle hasten to the field,
And toil with Him till evening ‘mid the ripened corn,
The call is ringing: “On to harvest!” [Refrain]

3 Go forth with joy and gladness at the Master’s call;
Doubt not, He’s speaking, ‘tis a call for you,
Be watchful in your reaping, lest some friend may fall,
The call is ringing: “On to harvest!” [Refrain]

4 Sweet rest you’ll find at evening, when you’ve gathered in
The sheaves and gleanings, let no one be lost;
Still precious souls are waiting in the field of sin,
The call is ringing: “On to harvest!” [Refrain]
