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

Full Text

1 Cast thy bread upon the water,
’Twill return in many days;
Crumbs of truth for Jesus scatter,
All along thy pilgrim ways.

Refrain:
Cast thy bread upon the water,
It will soon return again;
Cast thy bread upon the water,
Jesus says ’tis not in vain.

2 Cast thy bread upon the water,
Christ will watch the rolling wave,
As it ripples slowly onward,
To the soul He seeks to save. [Refrain]

3 Cast thy bread upon the water,
Let it spread from pole to pole;
And the prayers of patient toilers
Soon will yield some precious soul. [Refrain]

4 Cast thy bread upon the water,
Trusting it is not in vain,
For the lost and wand’ring sinner
May be gathered back again. [Refrain]
