Representative Text

1 There’s a call that comes ringing
Over mountain and plain,
O’er the wide world ‘tis sounding,
Comes again and again:
‘Tis the world-cry for reapers,
For the helpers are few,
And the Master needs workers
Who are faithful and true.

Hear the call of the Master,
It rings clear and plain,
Haste away to the fields
Of the fast-rip’ning grain;
Oh, the Master needs workers
Who are faithful and true,
Yes, the Master needs helpers
And He has need of you.

2 From the far-away countries,
From the isles of the sea,
Comes the loud call for workers
And it means you and me;
Oh, be ready and willing,
To the summons give heed,
For the Master needs helpers
And of you He hath need. [Chorus]

3 Then away to the reaping
While the fields are all white,
See, the harvest is waiting
‘Neath the gospel’s true light;
Labor on with rejoicing
Till the night cometh on;
Bring the sheaves to the Master,
Hear the blessed, “well done.” [Chorus]
