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

736. Call for Workers

1. In the vineyard of the Lord,
There is work for all to do;
Will you go and work today,
With a purpose strong and true?

Refrain
Heed the call, brother dear,
For workers today;
Let your eyes see the need
Of workers today.

2. Brother, sister, hear the call!
All along, your aid afford,
Let us strive to save the lost
Strive to save by work and word. [Refrain]

3. Mark the spirit’s direful fate,
Wheresoever sin is found;
Come, and lend a helping hand,
Let the shackles be unbound. [Refrain]

4. Oh, for workers strong and brave,
Who will lift the banner high;
So the lost can see the way,
To the mansions in the sky. [Refrain]
