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 Let me die in the harness
When my work on earth is done;
Let me toil for the Master
Till the setting of the sun;
With armor on and girded
I’ll await the order giv’n:

“Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,”
Go to meet your Lord in heav’n.

2 Let me die in the harness,
Never idly loit’ring here;
Fields are white for the harvest;
Haste, ye reapers, never fear;
Go, gather sheaves all golden,
Ere the midnight cry is giv’n: [Refrain]

3 Let me die in the harness,
Valiant soldier of the cross;
Ever faithful to duty,
Lest my Captain suffer loss;
A starry crown of glory
To the victor will be giv’n: [Refrain]
