Who will be a reaper in the harvest

Representative Text

1 Who will be a reaper in the harvest field,
Working for the Master dear?
Who will gather fruit and grain, working under sun and rain,
Day by day, and year by year.

Working at the side of the Master,
Never from the field we’ll roam!
Till the falling of the night, and the gleam of sunset light,
When with joy we’ll gladly sing Harvest Home!

2 Who will be a reaper ‘mid the golden sheaves,
Serving well the Master true?
Never falter at the work, never tire and never shirk,
For there is so much to do. [Refrain]

3 Who will be a reaper in the field today,
Toiling with the Master kind?
If we do our very best, we can leave to him the rest,
And a precious harvest field. [Refrain]
