Representative Text

1 ’Tis never too late to be working,
The fields are all shining so bright;
Go work in them now with all pleasure,
And bring in the sheaves with delight.

Go labor today, the summons obey;
The fields are so bright,
Go gather the sheaves while you may.

2 ’Tis never too late to be working,
While calls for the laborers we hear;
The call is to all that are idle,
O list to the summons so dear. [Refrain]

3 ’Tis never too late to be working,
For Jesus who saved us from sin;
Then ever be ready and willing,
To gather the wanderers in. [Refrain]
