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 The fields are white, the harvest waits
The reaper’s hand to garner in
The sheaves of good for Christ the Lord,
From out those earthly fields of sin.

Go bring them in, go bring them in,
The souls for whom Christ died;
Tell out the news, the blessed news,
Of our Redeemer crucified.

2 Go ye into the whole wide world,
And teach of Christ to men undone;
Till he shall everywhere be known,
And many souls to him be won. [Refrain]

3 To those that work, the blest reward,
As stars they shall forever shine,
When I shall all my jewels count,
In that glad day they shall be mine. [Refrain]
