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 Hymnary.org, 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

Full Text

1 Go work in my vineyard today,
Why stand ye so idle around?
The day is far gone and the night cometh on,
Why not with the lab’rers be found?

Refrain:
Why not today? why not today?
Work in my vineyard today:
For the day is far gone and the night cometh on,
Go work in my vineyard today.

2 Go work in my vineyard today,
Be earnest, be active, be strong;
Go forth in his might who will honor the right,
And give thee thy wages ere long. [Refrain]

3 Go work in my vineyard today,
Precious souls may be brought by thy love
From the darkness of night to his marvellous light,
To a home with the ransom’d above. [Refrain]

4 Go work in my vineyard today,
Go honor thy Master and Lord;
All thy talents improve by thy labor of love,
And heaven shall be thy reward. [Refrain]
