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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

480. Awake, Awake to Love and Work

1 Awake, awake to love and work:
the lark is in the sky,
the fields are wet with diamond dew,
the worlds awake to cry
their blessings on the Lord of life
as he goes meekly by.

2 Come, let thy voice be one with theirs,
shout with their shout of praise,
see how the giant sun soars up,
great lord of years and days!
So let the love of Jesus come
and set thy soul ablaze.

3 To give, and give, and give again
what God hath given thee,
to spend thyself, nor count the cost,
to serve right gloriously
the God who gave all worlds that are,
and all that are to be.
