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 Some day I’ll reap what I have sown,
Some day—I know not when,
But fruit and tares maturely grown
Will all be gathered then.

Some day—I cannot tell
Just when, but, Lord, I pray,
That I may go to dwell
With thee some happy day.

2 Some day my deeds of good and wrong,
Some day—it may be soon,
Will rise before me in a throng,
Clear as the light of noon. [Refrain]

3 Some day the Judge upon the throne,
Some day—will speak to me,
Will either welcome or disown
Me for eternity. [Refrain]
