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, 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 to do something for Jesus, my Lord!
Something his cause to defend;
Firm for the right and opposed to the wrong,
Steadily on to the end.

O to do something, something today,
Something for Jesus, my Lord!
Surely, the faithful ones, laboring here,
Soon shall receive their reward.

2 O to do something for Jesus, my Lord!
Golden the harvest today;
Many are wandering far from the fold;
Help me to show them the way! [Refrain]

3 O to do something for Jesus, my Lord!
Now, ere the journey is run;
Working for Jesus brings sweetest content;
Then his approval, “Well done!” [Refrain]
