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.

Representative Text

1. Go work in the vineyard, ’tis Jesus commands,
Then why are we idle and folding our hands?
He speaks to the children and we must obey,
Go work in the vineyard, go labor today.

Refrain
Sow in the morning the seed of the Word,
Sow in the morning and trust in the Lord,
He of our labor a record will keep;
Life everlasting and joy we shall reap.

2. Go forth in the vineyard, how earnest the call,
There’s work for the children, there’s plenty for all:
Too precious the moments to squander away,
Go work in the vineyard, go labor today. [Refrain]

3. Go work in the vineyard, how glad we should be
That Jesus is saying to you and to me,
The harvest is coming, arise! and away,
Go work in the vineyard, go labor today. [Refrain]

4. Go forth at His bidding our places to fill,
Go forth at His bidding and work with a will;
Grieve not the dear Savior by longer delay,
Go work in the vineyard, go labor today. [Refrain]
