Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 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]
