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 Hymnary.org, 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 List! across the ocean comes the call today,
Weary souls are dying; help them while you may;
Take to them the gospel, lead them to the King,
Make the soul sin darkness to arise and sing.

Refrain:
Hearken to their pleading, come and work today,
Fields are ripe and waiting, garner while you may;
Win them for the Master ere the daylight dies,
Tell them of the home prepared beyond the skies.
Hearken to their pleading, come and work today,
Fields are ripe and waiting, garner while you may.
Point to them the Master ere the daylight dies,
Tell them of their home prepared beyond the skies.

2 There is need of workers, lo! the fields are white;
But the clouds hang o’er them; who will take the light?
Hark! the Lord is calling for the lab’rer true,
In the time of harvest He hath need of you. [Refrain]

3 Swift the days are flying, win your precious store,
Ere the sheaves are gathered and the harvest o’er.
Hasten to the harvest, witness for the Lord,
Gladly spread the tidings of His love outpoured. [Refrain]
