Waiting is the golden harvest

Representative Text

1 Waiting is the golden harvest,
Waiting is the golden grain,
While the Master calls for reapers
From the hillside and the plain.

Refrain:
Who is willing? who is ready?
Who will go and work today?
See the golden harvest waiting!
Who will bear the sheaves away?

2 Truly is the harvest plenteous,
But the laborers are few;
Pray ye that the Lord of harvest
Send forth workmen tried and true. [Refrain]

3 Will the Master hold us guiltless,
If the work be left undone?
If for lack of labor, perish
Precious souls we might have won? [Refrain]

4 Haste, O hasten, Christian workers!
Swiftly speed the hours away;
Hearken to the Master’s warning,
Work ye while ‘tis called today. [Refrain]
