‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

There’s much to be said for a strong piano and a lot of people singing! This is the congregation at Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City–and Bringing in the Sheaves. One of my favorite hymns to sing.


By Request, ‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

I love this hymn, and I’m so glad Erlene requested it–Bringing in the Sheaves, sung by the unforgettable Tennessee Ernie Ford. Patty heard me playing it and did a little dance: first time she’d done that in a while.

Her ear has begun to fill with fluid again,  but the doctor said not to worry about that: now that he’s made the hole, it’ll drain out. Eventually it will all drain out. Meanwhile, she’s happy she can talk on the phone while holding it to her left ear–couldn’t do that while the ear wasn’t working.

I went to the supermarket after that, it’s only 84 degrees today but it feels hotter than that, and then had a cigar and wrote another chapter of The Wind From Heaven. For some reason I now feel exceedingly tired.

Thank you all for your prayers, and please keep them coming. We need ’em.


‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

What a wonderful rendition of this hymn, Bringing in the Sheaves, by Burl Ives!If you missed him in the 1950s and 60s, he was a noted folk singer and award-winning actor. And this is one of my favorite hymns, all the way back to Sunday school.

I’ll get to the requested hymn in a minute; but meanwhile, for whatever reason, I just had to hear Bringing in the Sheaves. This is Nathan from Denton County, Texas, on the auto harp. And if you’ve got a guitar handy, here are chords so you can play along.

I can only say this hymn never fails to move me.


‘Bringing in the Sheaves’ (Burl Ives)

Another hymn I’ve always loved, since I heard it first in Sunday school–Bringing in the Sheaves. Sung here by Burl ives, one of the great voices of the 1950s and 60s–and follow the lyrics. Sowing with tears, but reaping with joy: so God’s word has promised us.


By Request, ‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

Erlene asked for this bluegrass version of Bringing in the Sheaves, by the Shiloh Group, so here it is–and I’ll bet you find yourselves singing, humming, or whistling it later.


Bonus Hymn, ‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

I hope no one minds an extra hymn today, and an old-time traditional one at that.

Bringing in the Sheaves, sung by Burl Ives–remember him?

We may sow while weeping, that’s for sure: but it’s also for sure that we shall harvest with joy.


Hymn, ‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

I’m all caught up on hymn requests, so I hope you don’t mind if I go with this–Tennessee Ernie Ford singing Bringing in the Sheaves. This is another one I’d like to hear 50,000 people sing at once.

Father in Heaven, help us hold out till the harvest!


Hymn, ‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

When things look bleak; when the ungodly are riding high and whooping it up; when faith is at its low ebb–

What is the Christian to do?

Sing louder!

Best advice I ever heard, boys and girls. I heard it on this little, 15-minute Christian radio talk show.

Sing louder.

Bringing in the Sheaves is one of those old classic hymns that you can really put your heart into. I would love to hear King Ryons’ army sing it in their dozen different languages.

The guy who sings it here may not be the greatest singer in the world–ask God if He cares about that!–but I’ll bet you’ve never heard this glorious old hymn played on an autoharp. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve even seen a picture of an autoharp.

But enough talking–make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands!
