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

O Master Workman of the Race

Representative Text

1 O Master Workman of the race,
thou Man of Galilee,
who with the eyes of early youth
eternal things did see,
we thank thee for thy boyhood faith
that shone thy whole life through;
"Did ye not know it is my work
my Father's work to do?"

2 O Carpenter of Nazareth,
builder of life divine,
who shapest us to God's own law,
thyself the fair design,
build us a tower of Christ-like height
that we thy land may view
and see, like thee, our noblest work
our Father's work to do.

3 O thou who dost the vision send
and givest each their task,
and with the task sufficient strength,
show us thy will, we ask;
give us a conscience bold and good,
give us a purpose true,
that it may be our highest joy
our Father's work to do.
