We Shall Reap By And By

by Martha J. Lankton


In the cross of the Saviour
Our rejoicing shall be,
In the cross where he suffered
That we all might be free;
For the love that came seeking,
And has not passed us by,
let us work in his vineyard;
Our reward is on high.

In the midst if the shadows
Tho' our seed may be sown,
Tho' our strength may be weakness,
We can trust in his own;
He will smile on our labor
Thro' the clouds drifting be,
Let us work late and early;
Our reward is on high.

Praise the Lord for the promise
Of a mansion above,
That his children may enter
Thro' his mercy and love;
When he makes up his jewels
He will not pass us by,
Let us work and not weary;
Our reward is on high.

Let us work and be joyful
While the daylight shall last,
Let us work till the summer
And the harvest are past;
Then with sheaves ripe and golden
Home to rest let us fly,
Singing praises to Jesus
With the glad ones on high.

Chorus

We shall reap by and by,
We shall reap by and by,
Let us work and be faithful,
We shall reap by and by.
