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

Representative Text

1 Go work today; behold, the Master calleth;
Up and away to greet the morning light;
See, in the breeze the rip’ning grain is waving;
Go, while the summer days with hope are bright.

Go work today;
The Master calleth now to thee;
Go work today,
And glorious thy reward shall be.

2 Go work today; why tarry by the wayside?
Let us obey the Saviour’s earnest call;
Still labor on in sunshine or in shadow,
Lo, in the harvest there is work for all. [Refrain]

3 Go work today, our blessed Lord commands it,
Go in His name, relying on His love;
Then at the last, when all the sheaves are gathered,
Sweet will the resting be with Him above. [Refrain]
