Ripe and Right

"And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting Gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth.... And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud One sat like unto the Son of Man.... And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice... The time is come for Thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe" (Revelation 14:6,14,15).

The harvest is ripe, the time now is right
For preaching the Gospel on earth.
The darkness shall never extinguish its light
Nor shall it diminish its worth.

Now lift up your eyes to the fields abroad,
And hear what is loudly proclaimed!
We ought to preaching the Gospel of God
With urgency, never ashamed.

The time for our reaping shall come to and end;
The day of the harvest shall close.
Our Lord who has sent us shall one day commend
Each servant who faithfully goes.
