Who will work for Jesus

Representative Text

1. Who will work for Jesus in the harvest field,
The sheaves to garner in?
Who today will join us and the sickle wield,
These precious souls to win?

Go, gather in the sheaves,
O haste, O haste away;
Go and work for Jesus in the harvest field,
Go forth and work today.

2. Ev'ry single corner of this world-wide field
Is white with ripened grain,
Faithful, earnest effort will a harvest yield,
God's work is not in vain. [Chorus]

3. See the host around us who the Lord's might be!
Oh do not now delay!
Think of waiting millions far across the sea!
Go forth and work today. [Chorus]

4. There's a crown awaiting ev'ry faithful one
Who lends a helping hand;
Jesus soon is coming and will say "Well done"
To all the mission band. [Chorus]
