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

369. Lord of the Harvest, Hear

1 Lord of the harvest, hear
Thy needy servants' cry;
O grant our trusting, fervent prayer,
And all our wants supply.

2 On Thee we humbly wait,
Our wants are in Thy view;
The harvest, Lord, is truly great,
The laborers are few.

3 Anoint and send forth more
Into Thy Church abroad,
And let them speak Thy Word of power,
As workers with their God.

4 O let them spread Thy Name,
Their mission fully prove;
Thy universal grace proclaim,
Thine all-redeeming love.
