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.

Representative Text

1 Oh, come and work for Jesus,
With cheerful hearts and true,
And tell the love of Jesus,
Who bled and died for you;
Oh, come and work for Jesus,
In sunshine or in rain;
The seed you sow for Jesus
Shall not be sown in vain.

2 Come, let us work for Jesus,
By faith and earnest prayer;
The little ones in Jesus
Should claim our constant care;
Come, let us work for Jesus,
For hearts are bleeding sore,
While ’neath the wings of Jesus
There’s healing evermore.

3 Come, let us work for Jesus,
We’ve many jewels rare
To gather yet for Jesus,
Who shall their luster wear;
Then let us work for Jesus
Before the sun goes down;
We’ve hearts to win for Jesus
Ere we can wear a crown.
