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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

The Lord's vineyard

Full Text

1 Go work today in the vineyard of the Lord,
Work, work today, work, work today;
To those who toil he has promised a reward.
Work, work today, work today;
For a crown of life you may win and wear,
In your father’s house there are mansions fair.

Go work today, Go work today,
Go work today, Go work today.

2 Go seek the lost who have wandered from the fold,
Work, work today, work, work today;
In guilt and sin they perhaps are growing old,
Work, work today, work today;
For a word may fall or a tear may start,
That will find its way to some grateful heart. [Refrain]

3 Glad news, glad news to a lowly one proclaim,
Work, work today, work, work today;
Good will to man, through a dying Saviour’s name,
Work, work today, work today;
O, the time is short, it will soon be o’er,
And the night will come ye can work no more. [Refrain]
