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

24. Only Remembered

1 Up and away, like the dew of the morning,
Soaring from earth to its home in the sun;
Thus would I pass from the earth and its toiling,
Only remembered by what I have done.

Chorus:
Only remembered, only remembered,
Only remembered by what I have done,
Only remembered by what I have done.

2 Shall I be missed if another succeed me,
Reaping the fields I in springtime have sown?
No, for the sower may pass from his labors,
Only remembered by what he has done.

Only remembered, only remembered,
Only remembered by what he has done,
Only remembered by what he has done.

3 Only the truth that in life I have spoken,
Only the seed that on earth I have sown,
These shall pass onward when I am forgotten,
Fruits of the harvest, and what I have done.

Only remembered, only remembered,
Only remembered by what I have done,
Only remembered by what I have done.

4 O, when the Saviour shall make up His jewels,
When the bright crowns of rejoicing are won,
Then will His faithful and weary disciples
All be remembered by what they have done.

Only remembered, only remembered,
Only remembered by what they have done,
Only remembered by what they have done.
