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 Son of Man, thou madest known,
Thro' quiet work in shop and home,
The sacredness of common things,
The chance of life that each day brings.

2 O Workman true, may we fulfill
In daily life thy Father’s will;
In duty’s call, thy call we hear
To fuller life, thro' work sincere.

3 Thou Master Workman, grant us grace
The challenge of our tasks to face;
By loyal scorn of second best,
By effort true, to meet each test.

4 And thus we pray in deed and word,
Thy kingdom come on earth, O Lord;
In work that gives effect to prayer,
Thy purpose for thy world we share.

Amen.
