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 Jesus is calling, is calling to you,
“Rouse thee, my child! My work waits for thee;
Lo, in my vineyard there’s work yet to do,
Come, labor there with me.”
White are the fields, and the reapers are needed,
Shall some be lost while the call is unheeded?
Forth to the work! It is no time to sleep!
I’ll strengthen and help thee, my presence shall keep.

Refrain:
Hark! ‘Tis the Saviour! He’s calling for thee,
“Hasten, my child, my work waits for you;
Though my salvation is boundless and free,
Thou hast a part to do.”

2 Do with thy might what thy hands find to do,
Small tasks or great, He counts them the same;
Who knows the good that a small deed may do,
Done in the Master’s name?
Hasten the day that so surely is dawning!
Labor with joy in the light of the morning;
Work with thy might till the night hides the sun,
Then thine be the words of the Master: “Well done.” [Refrain]
