Take a look around you

tell me what do you see

are God's people preparing

to meet the King of King's


are they serving Him with gladness

never counting the cost

are the lifting up Jesus

winning souls of the lost


Oh the time is nearing

for the trumpet to sound

the saved will fly away

from this old sinful ground


the field is ready to harvest

there's much work to be done

put your hand to the plow

we must keep on keeping on


the harvest is plenty

but the laborer's are few

judgment day is coming

have you done all that you can do


don't be found sleeping

don't give up without a fight

the Good Shepherd Jesus

may gather His Sheep tonight
