The Lord of the Harvest Calls

Representative Text

1 The time of the harvest is nigh,
All ripened the waiting fields lie;
The lab'rers are few,
Christ calleth for you
To glean for his garner on high.

The lab'rers ae few;
Christ calleth for you;
Then hasten away,
The Lord of the harvest obey.

2 The Lord of the harvest needs you—
There's work that you only can do;
Then do not delay,
But hasten away
And glean where the toilers are few. [Refrain]

3 Oh, brother, the labor is blest,
And after the toil cometh rest;
Your Saviour and Lord
Will richly reward,
If you will but heed his request. [Refrain]
