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 Leave not for tomorrow the work of today,
For time, like an arrow, is speeding away;
The harvest is ready, look out on the plain;
Go, thrust in the sickle and gather the grain.

Refrain:
Go, gather the golden grain,
Go, gather the golden grain;
The harvest is ready, look out on the plain;
Go, gather the golden grain.

2 Leave not for tomorrow the work of today,
The moments are precious, then why should we stay?
The Master is calling again and again;
Go, thrust in the sickle and gather the grain. [Refrain]

3 Leave not for tomorrow the work of today,
The summer is waning, no longer delay;
The sheaves for the reaping wave bright o’er the plain;
Go, thrust in the sickle and gather the grain. [Refrain]
