1 Oh, wake, for the day is passing,
And swiftly approacheth night!
The grain in its ripened beauty
Bends low in the valley bright!

Refrain:
Haste to the field of labor,
Bring the glad harvest home;
The kingdom of God is waiting,
Come, all ye reapers, come.

2 Come now with your sickles sharpened,
Make ready the shining blade;
The Master himself is working,
And calling for earnest aid. [Refrain]

3 Oh, come to the work rejoicing,
And gladly do well your part;
The Lord needeth earnest workers,
And faithful and true of heart. [Refrain]

4 Oh, wake, for the day advances!
Toil not o’er the falling leaves;
But now, for the final harvest,
Bear homeward the golden sheaves. [Refrain]
