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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 With the glorious morning,
Verdant fields adorning;
While the golden sunlight
Wakes the dewy leaves.
Haste we now with gladness,
Banish care and sadness,
Go and help the reapers
Gather in the sheaves.

Refrain:
Gather in the sheaves,
Gather in the sheaves,
While the voice of nature
Sweetest music breathes:
Hear the Master calling,
Hear the echoes falling;
Go and help the reapers,
Gather in the sheaves.

2 When the days are brightest,
When our hearts are lightest;
When the lovely summer
Fairest beauty weaves.
In the noontide beaming,
In the twilight gleaming,
Go and help the reapers
Gather in the sheaves. [Refrain]

3 Should our way be dreary,
Let us never weary,
Earnest, faithful labor
Greatest joy receives:
Tho’ we toil in sorrow,
Soon will dawn the morrow,
When we’ll cross the river
Bearing home the sheaves. [Refrain]
