Representative Text

1 We dare not idle stand,
While here on ev’ry hand
The broad and whit’ning fields declare the day of harvest near;
Thy gleaners we must be,
And gather, Lord, for thee,
That when thou callest we shall not with empty hands appear.

Chorus:
Working for the Master
For garners by and by,
More reapers yet are needed!
Who’ll answer, “Here am I!”

2 We dare not idle stand,
While over all the land
Are wand’rers, needing just the help of hands like thine and mine;
Far brighter than the gem
In monarch’s diadem
Each soul we win a star forever in our crown shall shine. [Chorus]

3 We dare not idle stand,
But at the Lord’s command
For him must faithful be and true thro’ all the harvest day;
The day will soon be past,
The evening come at last,
When everlasting life and joy will all our toil repay. [Chorus]
