Representative Text

1 We are a little gleaning band,
We cannot bind the sheaves,
But we can follow him who reaps,
And gather what he leaves,
We are not strong, but Jesus loves
The weakest of the fold,
And in our feeble efforts, prove
His tenderness untold.

We are a little gleaning band,
We cannot bind the sheaves,
But we can follow him who reaps
And gather what he leaves.

2 We are not rich, but we can give,
As we are passing on
A cup of water in his name,
To some poor fainting one,
We are not wise, but Christ, our Lord,
Revealed to babes his will,
And we are sure from his dear word,
He saves his children still. [Refrain]

3 We know that with our gathered grain
Briars and leaves are seen;
Yet since we tried, He smiles the same,
And takes our offering,
Dear children still, hosannas sing
As Christ doth conquering come
Casting your treasures as he brings
The heathen nations home. [Refrain]
