Mosaic Monday ~ Bringing in the Sheaves

Monday, November 2, 2009
Posting to Mary's Mosiac Monday at Little Red House. Thanks for hosting, Mary!




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.

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.

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,
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.

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,

  1. How beautiful...I grew up surrounded by the wheat fields of Kansas...where I live now, close to Kansas City they really don't plant wheat...I miss it...those glorious fields of gold waving in the breeze.

  1. What a beautiful mosiac-would be a pretty wall hanging.

    What a neat idea to use wheat in your mosaic. I too remember singing this song with my
    Grandmother. I wish our church would sing some of the old hymns.

    Thanks for the beautiful photos, and for posting George Minor's gospel song, "Bringing in the Sheaves." (Minor was born 164 years ago today.) I talk a bit about the meaning of the song on my daily blog today. If you enjoy reading about hymns and their history, I invite you to drop in for a visit at Wordwise Hymns.
