Representative Text

1 While the dews of morning,
Verdant fields adorning,
E’er the glorious sunlight,
Dries the dewy leaves;
Thus with hearts of gladness,
Leaving care and sadness,
Hasten now the reapers
Gathering in the sheaves.

Refrain:
Gathering in the sheaves,
Gathering in the sheaves,
See the busy reapers
Gathering in the sheaves.

2 While the day is going,
Love for God is flowing,
Like the summer lovely,
Grandest beauty weaves;
Songs of praise resounding,
Busy workers bounding,
Hastening in the harvest,
Gathering in the sheaves. [Refrain]

3 If the day is dreary,
And the feet grow weary
Then the earnest laborers,
Greatest joy receive;
He that sows in sorrow,
Joyful reaps tomorrow,
With the holy angels
Gathering in the sheaves. [Refrain]
