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.
1 Ever let thy hand be busy,
Lay the threads out one by one;
Ever ply time’s ceaseless shuttle,
Till life’s work is nobly done.
Work then for the blessed Master!
He is with thee day by day;
Be Thou faithful to thy calling;
Work away! yes, work away!
2 Never heed the idlers round thee,
Watchful be with patient eye;
Mark thou well the noble pattern,
And thy life-work beautify. [Chorus]
3 Hand and eye must work together,
Standing ‘neath a light divine;
Thou shalt bring a lasting service,
And the “Well done” shall be thine. [Chorus]
