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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 Ev’ry one is sowing both by word and deed,
All mankind are growing either wheat or weed;
Thoughtless ones are throwing any kind of seed,
Sowing, sowing, sowing.

Surely as the sowing shall the harvest be!
See what you are throwing over hill and lea;
Words and deeds are growing for eternity,
Growing, growing, growing.

2 Serious ones are seeking seed already sown,
Many eyes are weeping, now the crop is grown;
Think upon the reaping–each one reaps his own,
Reaping, reaping, reaping. [Refrain]

3 Ye that would be bringing sheaves of golden grain,
Mind what you are flinging both from hand and brain;
Then with happy singing you shall glean great gain,
Gleaning, gleaning, gleaning. [Refrain]
