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 Cast thy bread upon the waters,
Find it after many days;
Jesus' toiling sons and daughters,
Loud shall sing their harvest praise.

God's own children gladly singing,
Singing songs of harvest home;
Golden sheaves in triumph bringing,
Jesus bids us welcome home.

2 Sow in faith, on God depending,
Ev'n in hardest, poorest soil;
Patient care and labor spending,
God will recompense the toil. [Refrain]

3 Sow in faith, nor ever weary,
Hoping on, and fainting not,
Though the day be dark and dreary,
Reaping soon shall be thy lot. [Refrain]

4 Soon shall cease the time of sowing,
Soon the waiting days be o'er,
Plenteous harvest richly growing,
For God's glory, evermore. [Refrain]

5 Golden sheaves in triumph bringing,
Jesus' reapers hasten home!
Harvest welcome gladly singing,
Jesus meets them as they come. [Refrain]
