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 Hark! O hark! a call for workers,
Coming from the fields today;
Who will now with joy and gladness,
Haste the summons to obey?

Refrain:
Fields are white, the harvest waiting,
But the laborers are few:
Ye who still outside are standing,
Come, your Lord hath need of you.

2 All around us souls are dying,
All around for help they cry;
Ye who know the way to heaven,
Will you idly pass them by? [Refrain]

3 Haste to gather sheaves for Jesus,
Let no other take your crown,
Win His word of commendation,
When all burdens are laid down. [Refrain]

4 Soon will come the Lord of harvest,
Rich reward His own to bring;
O what joy ‘twill be to greet Him,
If we’ve truly served our King. [Refrain]
