In the glad time of the harvest,
In the grand millennial year,
When the King shall take His scepter,
And to judge the world appear,
Earth and sea shall yield their treasure,
All shall stand before the throne;
Just awards shall then be given,
When the King shall claim His own.

O the rapture of His people!
Long they’ve dwelt in earth’s low sod,
With their hearts e’er turning homeward,
Rich in faith and love to God.
They shall share the life immortal,
They shall know as they are known,
They shall pass the pearly portal,
When the King shall claim His own.

Long they’ve toiled within the harvest,
Sown the precious seed with tears;
Soon they’ll drop their heavy burdens
In the glad millennial years;
They shall share the bliss of Heaven,
Never more to sigh or moan;
Starry crowns shall then be given,
When the King shall claim His own.

We shall greet the loved and loving,
Who have left us lonely here;
Every heartache will be banished
When the Savior shall appear;
Never grieved by sin or sorrow,
Never weary or alone;
O we long for that glad morrow
When the King shall claim His own.
