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

106. Toiling for Thee

1 We have been toiling, dear Master, today;
Now, as the twilight is fading away,
Here we have gathered to rest at thy feet,—
Come in thy mercy thy children to greet.

Refrain:
Toiling for thee,
Toiling for thee,
Earnestly toiling, dear Master, for thee;
Toiling for thee,
Toiling for thee,
Rich with thy blessing our harvest will be.

2 We have been seeking, and lo! we have found
Vines that were broken and trailed on the ground;
Tenderly stooping we bound them again;
Now we are waiting the dew and the rain. [Refrain]

3 We have been trying to watch unto prayer,
Trying the burdens of others to bear;
Grant us thy wisdom, thy grace from above;
Help us to labor in meekness and love. [Refrain]

4 Lord, thou art with us; we know thou art here;
Why do we falter, and what do we fear?
If we are faithful, and trust in thy word,
Fruit in abundance our toil will reward. [Refrain]
