Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 O work and wait a little while,
The harvest time is near;
Look up! the sky is bright above,
Tho’ all around be drear.

Refrain:
Work and wait a little while,
The harvest time is near,
The sky is bright above
Tho’ all around be drear.

2 The deaf shall hear, the blind shall see
And darkness flee away;
Be patient yet a little while
For dawns the golden day. [Refrain]

3 Work on, the bending harvest glows
And darkness soon will come;
Be faithful, and you shall rejoice
To sing the “Harvest Home.” [Refrain]
