Representative Text

1 There’ll be singing and rejoicing in the land beyond the sight,
Where the glory is eternal and the skies are ever bright;
As we hear the Master’s welcome, it will fill us with delight,
When the harvest shall be gathered by and by.

Refrain:
When the harvest shall be gathered by and by,
When the sower and the reaper reach the land beyond the sky,
Ev’ry heart will beat with gladness, ev’ry tear will then be dry,
When the harvest shall be gathered by and by.

2 There’s reward for faithful workers who have always done their best,
Bothe the sower and the reaper will obtain the promised rest;
If we labor for the Master we’ll be numbered with the blest,
When the harvest shall be gathered by and by. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ we sow the seed with weeping, joy will fill our hearts at last,
When the day of toil is over and the weariness is past;
Then the sheaves we’ll bind in triumph, at the Master’s feet to cast,
When the harvest shall be gathered by and by. [Refrain]
