Bringing In The Sheaves

Lyrics: Knowles Shaw
Music: George A. Mi­nor

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.

Refrain:
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.

Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Though 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.

Bring Them In

Lyrics: Alexcenah Thomas
Music: William A. Ogden

Hark! ’tis the Shepherd’s voice I hear
Out in the desert dark and drear,
Calling the sheep who’ve gone astray
Far from the Shepherd’s fold away.

Refrain:
Bring them in, bring them in,
Bring them in from the fields of sin;
Bring them in, bring them in,
Bring the wand’ring ones to Jesus.

Who’ll go and help this Shepherd kind,
Help Him the wand’ring ones to find?
Who’ll bring the lost ones to the fold,
Where they’ll be sheltered from the cold?

Out in the desert hear their cry,
Out on the mountains wild and high;
Hark! ’tis the Master speaks to thee,
“Go find My sheep where’er they be.”

What The World Needs Is Jesus

Lyrics and Music: Benjamin A. Baur

What the world needs is Jesus,
Just a glimpse of Him;
What the world needs is Jesus,
Just a glimpse of Him;
He will bring joy and gladness,
Take away sin and sadness;
What the world needs is Jesus,
Just a glimpse of Him.

What the world needs is Jesus,
He alone can save;
What the world needs is Jesus,
All His love He gave.
There is no other Saviour,
He can change men’s behaviour;
What the world needs is Jesus,
Just a glimpse of Him.

Here’s a simple and hopefully enjoyable version of What A Friend We Have In Jesus. The piano score can be download as well.

If you would like to learn how to create beautiful piano arrangement for hymns, check out Greg Howlett’s Website. I have personally bought his courses and they are in my humble opinion excellent value.

At The Door

Here’s a hymn about Christ’s second coming and a great sermon by John Piper to go along with it. Amen.

Lyrics and Music: F. E. Belden

The coming King is at the door.
Who once for cross for sinners bore,
But now the righteous ones alone,
He comes to gather home.

Refrain:
At the door, at the door,
At the door, yes even at the door,
He is coming, He is coming,
He is even at the door

The signs that show His coming near,
Are fast fulfilling year by year,
And soon we’ll hail the glorious dawn,
Of heav’n’s eternal morn.

Look not on earth for strife to cease,
Look not below for joy and peace,
Until the Saviour comes again
To banish death and sin.

Then in the glorious earth made new
We’ll dwell the countless ages through;
This mortal shall immortal be,
And time, eternity.
