During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

Representative Text

1 Go forth to the field of the harvest,
The Master is calling for thee;
The fields are all white for the reaping,
And golden the harvest will be.

Refrain:
Go forth, go forth,
Go forth to the vineyard today,
The fields are all white for the harvest,
Go forth to the vineyard today.

2 Go forth with a smile for the weary,
Go forth with a word for the sad;
A sweet song of hope for the mourner,
An anthem of peace for the glad. [Refrain]

3 Go forth with a heart true and tender,
And scatter the sunshine to all;
The Lord will speak peace in the valley,
When shadows around thee shall fall. [Refrain]

4 Go forth to the field of the harvest,
Go forth to the vineyard today;
For night comes apace in the valley,
And harvest-time passeth away. [Refrain]
