MY HOUSE IS FULL (But My Field Is Empty)

There is peace and contentment in my Father's house today,
Lots of food on His table and no one turned away.
There is singing and laughter as the hours pass by,
But a hush calms the singing as the Father sadly cries,

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who will go and work for Me today.
It seems my children(all)want to stay around my table,
But no one wants to work(in)my fields,
No one wants to work(in)my fields.

Push away from the table.
Look out through the windowpane,
Just beyond the house of plenty
Lies a field of golden grain.
And it's ripe(white)unto harvest,(oh)
But the reapers, where are they?
(There)In the house,
Oh, can't the children hear
the Father sadly say,

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who will go and work for Me today.
It seems my children(all)want to stay around my table,
But no one wants to work(in)my fields,
No one wants to work(in)my fields.

This is a simplified chord chart. If you have OnSong you can copy this directly to the app and change keys. It’s been so long since I’ve heard them sing it so I don’t know what key they originally sing it in but this is what key I sing it in.

If you’d like other chord charts I’ve got them. Just reach out to me. BlakePolk@me.com :)
