Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 Hast thou no part to bear
For him who bore thy shame,
Who weighs thy ev’ry care,
And calls thee by his name?

O yes, I clasp the cross,
And bear it in his sight;
I ne’er shall suffer loss,
For grace shall make it light.

2 Hast thou no life to give
For him who died for thee?
Shall self before him live,
In view of Calvary? [Refrain]

3 Hast thou no work to do
For him whose hands have wrought
A robe that’s ever new,
And raiment white hath bought? [Refrain]

4 Tho’ day with thee be brief,
Has Christ on thee no claim?
Wilt thou not bring one sheaf
To glorify his name? [Refrain]
