1. In the harvest field now ripened There's a work for all to do; Hark! the voice of God is calling To the harvest calling you. 2. In the mad rush of the broad way, In the hurry and the strife, Tell of Jesus' love and mercy, Give to them the Word of Life. 3. Does the place you're called to labor Seem too small and little known? It is great if God is in it, And He'll not forget His own. 4. Are you laid aside from service, Body worn from toil and care? You can still be in the battle, In the sacred place of prayer. 5. When the conflict here is ended And our race on earth is run, He will say, if we are faithful, "Welcome home, My child well done!" Chorus: Little is much when God is in it! Labor not for wealth or fame. There's a crown and you can win it, If you go in Jesus' Name.
