1 Would you stand among the toilers,
When the harvest all is in?
For the blessed Lord and Master,
You must here the work begin.

Refrain:
When the harvest all is in,
When the harvest all is in,
What a meeting of the reapers,
What a shouting of hosannas,
When the harvest all is in.

2 Would you join the song of gladness,
When the harvest all is in?
You must be a faithful gleaner
In the haunts of woe and sin. [Refrain]

3 Would you have some sheaves to offer,
When the harvest all is in?
From the husks of want and folly,
Strive the prodigals to win. [Refrain]

4 Would you have a crown eternal,
When the harvest all is in?
Seek to swell the heav’nly garner,
Ere it be too late to glean. [Refrain]
