Harvesting the Sheaves
George Clausen (1852-1944)

Let us away, no longer delay,
Morning with joy is bright;
Let us away and labor today
Out in the fields so white.

Refrain

Onward, onward, bounding along,
Onward, onward, join the busy throng.
Shouting, singing, o’er the harvest plain;
Joyful, joyful, gather in the grain.

Let us away, the message obey,
Jesus repeats the call;
Come with a will, our mission fulfill,
Haste to the work for all.

Refrain

Let us away, we cannot delay,
Harvest will soon be o’er;
Moments and hours, like beautiful flow’rs,
Soon will return no more.

Refrain

Let us away, O let us away,
Lifting our eyes above;
Faithful and true our labor pursue,
Trusting a Savior’s love.

Refrain
