Representative Text

1 Work in the harvest that for you calls;
Gathering sheaves for Jesus,
Work till the twilight around you falls,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus;
Hasten, O hasten, delay no more,
Garner for heaven the golden store,
Work till the season of toil is o’er,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus.

Refrain:
Gathering sheaves,
Gathering sheaves,
Find in life’s harvest divine employ,
Bringing the soul everlasting joy,
Rapture that never shall know alloy,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus.

2 Reap, for the harvest-field lies worldwide,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus,
Serve with the faithful ones side by side,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus;
Tho’ you toil hard thro’ the burning heat,
Laying bright grain at the Master’s feet,
You will have won benediction sweet,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Patiently toil in the field of time,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus,
Laying up treasure for realms sublime,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus;
Tho’ you oft weary and faint may be,
And with dim eyes oft your tasks may see,
Labor in faith for eternity,
Gathering sheaves for Jesus. [Refrain]
