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

Gather in the grain

Representative Text

1 Go, gather in the golden grain, for lo! ‘tis harvest time;
The call comes ringing o’er the world from ev’ry land and clime;
The fields are white to harvest, but the reapers—where are they?
UP! for the Lord of harvest calls to work, to work today.

Go, gather in the grain from valley, hill and plain;
Make no delay, the call obey—
Go, gather in the grain.

2 Go, gather in the golden grain,—a faithful reaper be;
Take down the rusty sickle, for the Lord hath need of thee;
Go out into the highways and the hedges ev’rywhere,
And gather in the precious sheaves that lie neglected there. [Refrain]

3 Go, gather in the golden grain,—you duty is assigned;
Be faithful in the cause of right—the good of human kind;
Go, speak a word of comfort sweet to some one in distress,
And He who raised the widow’s son, abundantly will bless. [Refrain]
