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

Representative Text

1 Oh, we are busy workers in the vineyard of the Lord;
Our fruit will all be gathered by and by.
The angels will come reaping for the storehouse up above;
The angels will come reaping by and by,
The angels will come reaping by and by.

2 How sweet will be the harvest when with Jesus we’ll sit down!
How sweet will be the harvest by and by!
When gathered in his garner all our golden fruit we see,
The reapers will be singing by and by,
The reapers will be singing by and by.

3 Whatever we are sowing, ‘tis the same we’ll also reap;
We’ll hear our Saviour’s welcome by and by.
Well done, ye faithful servants; enter now into my joy,
Will be the Saviour’s welcome by and come,
Will be the Saviour’s welcome by and come.
