Advent Hymnals

588. HARVEST TIME

Christ in Song,

1.
He that goeth forth with weeping,
Bearing precious seed in love,
Never tiring, never sleeping,
Findeth mercy from above.

Chorus:
Lo, the scene of verdure bright'ning!
See the rising grain appear;
Look!  the waving fields are whit'ning,
For the harvest time is near.

2.
Soft descend the dews of heaven,
Bright the rays celestial shine;
Precious fruits will thus be given
Thro' an influence all divine.  [Chorus]

3.
Sow thy seed, be never weary,
Let no fears thy soul annoy;
Be the prospect ne'er so dreary,
Thou shalt reap the fruits of joy.  [Chorus]
