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 Hymnary.org, 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

791. We Will Work for Jesus

1 We will work for Jesus, and adore the plan
That exalteth so a fallen race,
Joining with the Savior, doing what we can
To extend the wonders of His grace.

Refrain:
We will work for Jesus, we will work for Jesus,
We will live for Him who died for all;
We will work for Jesus, we will work for Jesus,
Till we hear the final trumpet call.

2 We will work for Jesus, all to Him we owe;
Only for His mercy we would be
Lost in sin forever; but we truly know
That His mighty love has set us free. [Refrain]

3 We will work for Jesus, we are not our own,
Jesus, we can never idle be;
Souls around us dying, purchased for Thy throne,
We will gather all we can for Thee. [Refrain]

4 We will work for Jesus, bless His holy name!
Everywhere the ripened grain we see;
Early in the morning till the day is gone,
Jesus, we will labor on for Thee. [Refrain]
