We labor in the Gospel field
With willing hearts and true;
We gather in the precious yield
And ever keep in view:

Refrain

When the harvest comes!
When the harvest comes!
With precious sheaves be ready
When the harvest comes.

We gladly go where He may call
Our sheaves to seek and find;
We tell of Him who died for all,
Still bearing this in mind:

Refrain

We take the Word as we are shown
And sow it by the way;
We often reap what has been sown,
This precept to obey:

Refrain

We gladly spend these passing days
Amid the ripening grain;
We give the Master all the praise
By this our sweet refrain:
