Representative Text

1 Workers now are needed, hear the Lord’s command,
Christ needs you!
Fields are white to harvest, there are sheaves at hand,
Christ needs you!

Refrain:
Christ needs you!
Christ needs you!
In His vineyard there is work for all to do,
Christ needs you!

2 Multitudes are waiting for the Word of Life,
Christ needs you!
Be His faithful witness in a world of strife,
Christ needs you! [Refrain]

3 At your side is someone who should know the way,
Christ needs you!
Groping in the darkness, seeking Christ today,
Christ needs you! [Refrain]

4 Sound a note of warning to the lost in sin,
Christ needs you!
Ere it be too late, upon this work begin,
Christ needs you! [Refrain]

5 Tell salvation’s story to them one by one,
Christ needs you!
Soon the night will come when work cannot be done,
Christ needs you! [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
