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.

Representative Text

1 Be not deceived; each soul shall reap
Its harvest soon or late;
Sow now thy seed; the field is wide,
The world is thine estate.

Be not deceived, be not deceived;
Got is not mocked;
For whatsoever a man soweth,
Whatsoever a man soweth,
That shall he also reap,
That shall he also reap.

2 Sow evil deeds with careless hand
And one sad day behold
Thy garner filled with blighted hopes,
And woes and hundred fold. [Refrain]

3 Sow deeds of faith and hope and love,
Perchance with falling tears,
A harvest home of peace and joy
Will crown the work of years. [Refrain]

4 God’s law will stand forevermore,
The law His love made known,—
From out the harvest field of life
We reap as we have sown. [Refrain]
