Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

126. Together They are Growing

1. Together they are growing,
The wheat beside the tares;
The sunshine of God's mercy
For harvest each prepares.

They are ripening, ripening,
Ripening for the harvest;
The wheat for the garner,
The tares for the burning,
The reapers soon will come.

2. E'en now the fields are whitened,
And ready do appear
For work of angel reapers,
The harvest must be near. [Chorus]

3. Let us improve each moment,
In love and works abound;
That we may in the harvest
Among the wheat be found. [Chorus]
