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

Who will gather

Representative Text

1 Lo! the harvest field is bending,
Who will reap the golden grain,
Who will bear the sheaves away?
There are many idly standing
In the market and the lane,
But the reapers, where are they?

Who will gather, who will gather?
Who will gather in the golden grain?

2 See the many that are waiting,
‘Round about the golden field,
All in idleness today;
They have themes, they have suggestions,
For the labor and the yield,
But the reapers, where are they? [Refrain]

3 Hasten, brother, to the harvest,
To the harvest of the Lord!
Gather sheaves from near and far,
So that when the Master calleth,
This shall be the welcome word:—
“Blessed reapers; here they are!” [Refrain]
