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

Work till the sun goes down

Go work in the harvest of the Lord

Author: E. C. Avis
Tune: [Go work in the harvest of the Lord]
Published in 10 hymnals

Representative Text

Go work in the harvest of the Lord,
And let thy sheaves abound,
Nor stop 'mid the burning heat to rest,
But work till the sun goes down.

Chorus:
Go work, (and watch,) go work, (and pray,)
Go work till the sun goes down;
Go forth and work, and watch, and pray,
Go work till the sun goes down.

2 The work is great, the laborers few,
Go spread the news around;
No longer say there's nought to do,
But work till the sun goes down. [Chorus]

3 When souls are dying all around,
Why sit ye idle, dumb?
Go tell them of a Savior's love,
And work till the sun goes down. [Chorus]

4 Go work, while the daylight lingers, work;
Toil on till the crown is won,
And in the vineyard of the Lord
Rest not till the sun goes down. [Chorus]
