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 See the shining fields of waving grain,
See the harvest fields so white!
Overspreading ev'ry hill and plain,
See the harvest fields so white!

There is work each may do,
Work for me, work for you,
And the lab'rers are so very few
In the harvest fields so white!

2 Hear the Saviour, as he calleth thee
To the harvest fields so white!
"Come and labor earnestly for me
In the harvest fields so white!" [Chorus]

3 Haste! the Master's urgent call obey,
See the harvest fields so white!
Quickly join the reaper's ranks today
In the harvest fields so white! [Chorus]
