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 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.
