We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Go work today, no longer delay,
The morning with joy is bright;
Haste, haste away, and labor today,
O see harvest fields all white.

Go work today, O go work today,
The moments and days go by;
Faithful and true, your labor pursue,
And work for that home on high.

2 Go work today, O do not delay,
The Savior repeats the call;
Go with a will, your mission fulfill,
O haste, there is work for all. [Refrain]

3 Go work today, the message obey,
The harvest will soon be o’er;
Moments and hours, like beautiful flowers,
Will soon pass to come no more. [Refrain]
