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, 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

1 Christian, work for Jesus,
Who on earth for thee
Labored, wearied, suffered,
Died upon the tree.

2 Work with feet untiring,
By the Master led,
Help to free the drunkards
From their bondage dread.

3 Work with lips so fervid
That thy words may prove
Thou hast brought a message
From the God of love.

4 Work with heart that burneth;
Humbly at His feet
Priceless gems to offer,
For His crown made meet.

5 Work with prayer unceasing,
Borne on faith’s strong wing,
Earnestly beseeching
Trophies for the King.

6 Work while strength endureth,
Until death draw near;
Then thy Lord’s sweet welcome
Thou in Heaven shalt hear.
