Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

11790. Not Yet

1 Not yet is the summer ended,
Not yet is the harvest past;
But the fields with the grain are golden,
And the days are waning fast.

Not yet, not yet is the summer ended,
Not yet is the harvest past;
But the season of hope will be over,
And the harvest will come at last.

2 Not yet have the sheaves been gathered;
But oh! it will not be long
Till a sound from the fields shall reach thee,
Of the reaper’s happy song. [Refrain]

3 Not yet is the hand of mercy
Removed from the open door;
There is time for thy soul’s returning
Ere the day of grace is o’er. [Refrain]

4 O come, as the Lord commandeth;
Not yet is the harvest past,
And the summer is not yet ended;
But the days are waning fast. [Refrain]
