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

Seedtime and Harvest

As pilgrims and strangers we journey through life

Full Text

1 As pilgrims and strangers we journey through life:
Through sunshine and shadow, through calm and through strife;
Each day we are scattering seed as we go,
Some day ’twill be harvest—“we reap what we sow.”

2 Though weary and worn, and alone in your way,
And stormclouds are gath’ring, and dark is your day,
Weep not, toiling one, neither faint as you go;
The harvest is nearing—“we reap what we sow.”

3 Though life may appear as a cold, barren waste,
And comes no return of the bread you have cast,
Continue to do loving deeds as you go;
The harvest is nearing—“we reap what we sow.”

4 We’ll reap what we sow when the harvest is come,
Some day we shall garner the deeds we have done;
Then heed not the storm, nor the cold winds that blow,
Toil on till the harvest—“we reap what we sow.”
