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

Representative Text

1 Broad is the op’ning field,
Calling for help today;
Great is the harvest yield,—
Why should the work delay?

Refrain:
Up and away, my brother!
Gather the golden grain;
Be not a moment idle,
Gather, gather,
Gather till none shall remain.

2 Few are the willing hearts
Ready the work to do;
Weak are the lab’ring hands,
Weary the faithful few. [Refrain]

3 Word from our Lord has come,—
Sounds in our ears today:
White are the harvest fields;
Pray for more lab’rers—pray! [Refrain]
