Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Go forth to the harvest,
To the fields of ripened grain,
The Master loud is calling,
Why in idleness remain?
The yield is abundant and the laborers are few,
Then go forth! the Master calls for you!

Refrain:
Then go forth to the harvest of the Lord;
To the field,
And trust His word! The Master’s calling, calling.
Rich is the harvest and the laborers are few,—
Then go forth—the Master calls for you!

2 The grain must be gathered,
And the harvest days go by,
The golden hours are flying—
Who will answer “Here am I”?
The Lord of the harvest seeketh reapers tried and true,
Then go forth! the Master calls for you! [Refrain]

3 Delay not to gather
For the garners over there;
How can you from His bounty,
Withered leaves to judgment bear?
Behold, in His vineyard there is work for all to do,
Then go forth! the Master calls for you! [Refrain]
