Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

O Master Workman of the Race

Full 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.
