Bringing in the Sheaves
Words by Knowles Shaw
Music by George A. Minor

Psalm 126:6
"He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him."

divider

          Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
          Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
          Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
          We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

            Chorus
            Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
            We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,
            Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
            We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,

          Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
          Fearing neither clouds nor winter's chilling breeze;
          By and by the harvest, and the labor ended,
          We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

            Chorus
            Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
            We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,
            Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
            We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,

          Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
          Tho' the loss sustained our spirit often grieves;
          When our weeping's over, He will bid us welcome,
          We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

            Chorus
            Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
            We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,
            Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
            We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves,
