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.

Representative Text

1 Servant of God, awake unto thy duty;
Why will ye doubt, why falter, why delay?
Look on the fields that wave in golden beauty,
while thou art dreaming precious hours away.

Servant of God, arouse ye, awake!
Jesus is calling!
Go, labor for His sake!
Jesus is calling!
Go, labor for His sake!

2 Wide are the plains that glimm'ring lie before thee
Ripe unto harvest' thrust the sickle in!
High in the heav'ns the sun is burning o'er thee, -
Still thou art idle! Now the work begin. [Chorus]

3 Up! in the name of Him who died to save you;
Seek for the erring as He sought for you!
Always remember what in love He gave you,
And be a servant, loyal, brave, and true. [Chorus]

4 "He that endureth," is the word recorded,
Shall joy and everlasting life obtain;
To him a crown at last shall be awarded,
Thro' Chris the Lord, who was for sinners slain. [Chorus]
