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 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Beautiful, smiling and bright;
Why should’st thou wait till the shadows
Herlad the coming of the night?

Refrain:
Work with a will, work with a will,
Trust in the promise and the arm of the Lord;
Work with a will, work with a will,
Faithful to labor, thou shalt reap thy reward.

2 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Wheat for the Master to gain;
What tho’ the soil may be rugged,
Thou shalt not labor in vain. [Refrain]

3 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Gladly thy duty perform;
Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
God will provide the storm. [Refrain]

4 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Sow till its lustre shall cease;
Then for the reaping in glory,
Then for the resting in peace. [Refrain]
