Would you at the harvest

Representative Text

1 Would you at the harvest with the reapers sing?
Would you golden sheaves for Jesus bring?
Careful be in sowing while the hours wing!
We shall reap as we have sown!

Refrain:
We shall reap as we have sown,
Soon the harvest shall be known,
Careful be in sowing while the hours take wing;
We shall reap as we have sown.

2 Would you at the harvest reap a hundred-fold?
Would you know a wondrous joy untold?
Sow with lavish hand while shines the morning’s gold;
We shall reap as we have sown! [Refrain]

3 Would you at the harvest hear the glad “well-done?”
Would you know a crown of glory won?
Earnest be and true till shines the setting sun;
We shall reap as we have sown! [Refrain]
