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 Now that harvest-time is here,
Will you be a volunteer?
For the workers of the Lord are few;
Will you answer, "Here am I,
In Thy cause to do or die,"
If the Master's call should come to you?

Here am I, send me,
Here am I, send me
Over land or over sea;
Wheresoe'er the end may be,
Here am I, send me.

2 Sin is rife on ev'ry hand,
'Tis no time to idle stand,
Let us bravely help, its pow'r to stay;
Speak to someone, lost in sin,
Of the love of Christ within;
Help to spread the gospel light today. [Refrain]

3 Lord, I consecrate to Thee
All I am, or hope to be;
In Thy service I will e'er be true,
Winning souls from sin's dark night
To the glorious gospel light,
Which alone can wasted lives renew. [Refrain]
