Theres A Call That Comes


There’s a call that comes ringing
Over mountain and plain,
O’er the wide world ’tis sounding,
Comes again and again:
‘Tis the world-cry for reapers,
For the helpers are few,
And the Master needs workers
Who are faithful and true.

Chorus:
Hear the call of the Master,
It rings clear and plain,
Haste away to the fields
Of the fast-rip’ning grain;
Oh, the Master needs workers
Who are faithful and true,
Yes, the Master needs helpers
And He has need of you.

From the far-away countries,
From the isles of the sea,
Comes the loud call for workers
And it means you and me;
Oh, be ready and willing,
To the summons give heed,
For the Master needs helpers
And of you He hath need. [Chorus]

Then away to the reaping
While the fields are all white,
See, the harvest is waiting
‘Neath the gospel’s true light;
Labor on with rejoicing
Till the night cometh on;
Bring the sheaves to the Master,
Hear the blessed, “well done.” [Chorus]
