Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 O man of God, arise,
A voice sounds from the skies,
Awake, 'tis day!
Behold the fields in sight;
The harvest glows with light;
Put in your sickle bright;
Up and away!

2 My work is great, be strong;
The day of toil is long,
Seek help divine.
The dangers may appall;
Thy heart within thee fall;
Upon me always call;
My strength is thine.

3 My blood has tinged the cross
Thy soul to save from loss,
In endless night.
Let love reign in thy heart;
My truth and zeal impart;
Thus to the fields depart
With holy might.

4 The reaper shall be blest;
The toiler have his rest,
My word I give.
Like me thou shalt appear;
From sin forever clear;
Secure from every fear
With me to live.
