This Is The Field The World Below In Whi


This is the field; the world below,
In which the sower, came to sow,
Jesus the wheat, Satan the tares,
Fro so the word of truth declares;
And soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

Most awful truth; and is it so,
Must all the world the harvest know;
Is every man the wheat or tare;
Then for the harvest O prepare:
For soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

To love my sins, a saint to appear,
To grow the wheat, and be a tare;
will serve me while on earth below,
Where tares and wheat together grow;
But soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

But all that truly righteous be,
Their Father’s kingdom soon shall see;
Shine like the sun forever there,
He that hath ears, O let him hear:
And soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.
