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

1 O servant that, knowing thy Master’s command,
Still withholdeth from labor thy heart and thy hand,
He is calling this moment and saying to thee,—
For thy fruit I have waited,—what hast thou for me?

Refrain:
What hast thou for me? what hast thou for me?
For thy fruit I have waited,—what hast thou for me?

2 The dews of his mercy have dropped like the rain,
He has crowned thee with blessings again and again,
But, alas! disappointed, he saith unto thee,—
For thy fruit I have waited,—what hast thou for me? [Refrain]

3 Remember the fig tree that fruitless was found,
And they said, cut it down, for it cumbers the ground;
But the Lord of the vineyard, how patient with thee!
For thy fruit I have waited,—what hast thou for me? [Refrain]

4 While others are reaping and binding the sheaves
Wilt thou bring as thy off’ring a bundle of leaves?
Still thy kind, loving Master is saying to thee,—
For thy fruit I have waited,—what hast thou for me? [Refrain]
