Straight To To The Top

Lets raise our hands and all rejoice
Allow the world to hear our voice

This time of year the work never ends
We join together and help our friends

That’s how the Lord would have it be
I offer help to you, you offer help me

We are working together hand in hand
Because our harvest shall feed the land

Praise the Lord I want it to show
Jesus is the harvester of my soul

Jesus is now who harvest my crop
From the bottom straight to the top

Written for Brian's contest. Being from
a farming County the Harvest is very
dear to me. Last year I missed it due
to my back, this year I'm in school. I
think I'll go out on the weekend and
work a few hours for free just so I can
remain a part of something that I love
so much. Nothing like the smell of the
harvest in the morning, waiting on the
dew to dry so you can roll up in the Rice.
God I do miss the long days of honest
work but the Lord is Harvesting my life
in a new direction.
