Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Strive to be doing some good ev’ry day,
Sowing the seed by the way;
Life will be fleeting and soon will be past,
Work while the daytime shall last.

Refrain:
Working for Jesus each day,
Striving His word to obey,
Seeking for strength when we pray,
Sowing the seed by the way.
Working for Jesus each day,
Striving His word to obey,
Seeking for strength when we pray,
Sowing the seed by the way.

2 Strive to be doing the work of the Lord,
Learning His will from the word;
Oft, but a smile that in kindness is giv’n,
Helps some poor soul on to heav’n. [Refrain]

3 Strive to be leading a life fill’d with love,
Looking to Jesus above;
Lift up the fallen, the weary and sore,
Point to the wide open door. [Refrain]

4 Strive to be cheerful in all that you do;
Christ will your passions subdue.
Jesus will help you, will point out the way,
Watch, and forget not to pray. [Refrain]
