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

Chosen Workers

Representative Text

1 The Lord has always chosen those
Who love him and obey,
To do his work upon the earth
With faith and joy each day.
God gives each one the right to choose
To be a worker he can use.

2 The Lord chose Enoch, and he built
A city God could bless,
Where all were of one heart and mind
And dwelt in righteousness.
And Enoch knew the way to choose
To be a worker God could use.

3 The Lord chose others through the years
For every needful task.
He still needs workers who will serve
Wherever he may ask.
Help me, dear God, that I may choose
To be a worker you can use.
