150. At the Setting of the Sun

1 There is work to do for Jesus,
Work for ev'ry one to do;
For the fields are white with harvest,
But the laborers are few.
Labor for him in life's morning,
Labor till the day is done;
For your toiling will be ended
At the setting of the sun.

Chorus:
When your labor here is ended,
And your race on earth is run,
Will you have a sheaf for Jesus
At the setting of the sun?
Will you have a sheaf for Jesus
At the setting of the sun?

2 Golden hours are swiftly passing,
They will never come again;
Labor while the sun is shining,
Or you cannot save the grain.
Harvest time will soon be over,
But when life its course has run,
Will you have a sheaf for Jesus
At the setting of the sun. [Chorus]

3 Men on ev'ry side are dying,
Souls for whom the Saviour died;
Go and tell them of salvation,
Point them to the Crucified.
Then when angels reap the harvest,
When your crown of life is won,
You will stand among the reapers
At the setting of the sun. [Chorus]
