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.

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]
