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 Hear the voice of Jesus say,
Loudly crying unto all,
In my vineyard work to-day;
Hearken to his call.

Work, then, for Jesus,
He will own and bless your labors;
Work, work, for Jesus:
Work, work to-day.

2 Why, he asks, thro' all the day,
Stand ye idle, nothing do?
Enter in without delay:
I have work for you. [Refrain]

3 Work and serve me with delight,
Full reward to you I'll give;
At the gathering shades of night
Wages you'll receive. [Refrain]

4 Thro' the long and toilsome day,
'Neath a blazing, burning sun,
Bear the heat, pursue your way
Till your task is done. [Refrain]
