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 In the freshness of the morning,
Is the time to sow good seed,
By example, friendly warning,
You may some ne Christward lead.

Sow the gospel seed today,
Sow the gospel seed today.
In the Home, workshop or meeting,
Sow the Gospel seed today.

2 While your pulses strong are beating,
While you feel health’s glow and light,
In the home, workshop or meeting,
Active be for what is right. [Refrain]

3 Work for Christ today in earnest,
Now is your best time to start;
Where you may stay or may journey,
Drop a seed in some one’s heart. [Refrain]

4 Go and gather souls for Jesus,
While thy strength and breath remain;
Souls around you still are dying,
In their guilt and in their shame. [Refrain]

5 Work for Jesus, spread His teaching,
Show the world His bleeding side;
That the last ones may be gathered,
And the precious blood applied. [Refrain]
