We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Are you sowing the seed over soil rich and fertile,
In the broad field of life each day?
Are you sowing the seed that will spring up in beauty,
And in splendor along the way?

The harvest is soon,
The reaping-time will come!
Sow the seeds that are good and will yield abundant harvest,
When the sheaves are gathered home.

2 Are you sowing the seed over soil that is stony,
With indiff’rent and careless hand?
Are you sowing the seed that will bring forth a harvest
Full of thorns over all the land? [Refrain]

3 After seedtime is over, then cometh the reaping,
Hear the Lord of the harvest say:
“Gather into my barns all the sheaves bright and golden,
Casting chaff and the tares away!” [Refrain]
