The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few.@Matthew 9:37

Louise M. Anderson, 1893 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Oh, what have you done for Jesus,
And what are you doing today?
In the morning, at noontide, at even
Are you wasting your time away?

Refrain

Be ready, go while it is morning,
The Master is calling: there’s plenty to do;
The bright golden fields are now waiting,
But Oh, the lab’rers are few!

Oh, what have you done for Jesus,
And what are you doing today?
Are you reaping the rich, golden harvest
Or bearing the sheaves away?

Refrain

Oh, what have you done for Jesus,
And what are you doing today?
Are you safe in the field as a gleaner,
Oh, what are you doing, pray?
