The harvesters have gathered crops
to fill the factories, barns and shops
with food for everyone of us
and we should pray with thankfulness.
All safely gathered in once more
to eat, enjoy, or safely store.
Christ said one day he will return
and all his followers gather in
– those who already passed through death,
and those still living here on earth.
All safely gathered in with him
for his new earth that’s free from sin.
And when the books of what we’ve done
are opened, then we all each one
will know we’ve failed, but in his book
of those with sins forgiven he’ll look –
That Book names all who did receive
his gift of life, on him believe.
And what a gathering there will be
of all who love the Saviour, he
with them, a busy, happy life
with harmony, no pain or strife.
All safely gathered there begin
that blest eternity with him.
