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, 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 Let us be patient, patient,
Think of the growing grain,
How long it lies in the darksome earth,
Nurtured by sun and rain.

Waiting, praying, striving day by day,
Something to do for the Master’s sake,
Something for Him to say.

2 Let us be patient, patient,
Strive as the grain to grow;
The tender grass and the ripening ear,
Heralds the corn we know. [Refrain]

3 Let us be patient, patient,
Day after day to gain,
Till fully ripe all our sheaves may be
Gathered like golden grain. [Refrain]
