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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. The Master is calling, O come, let us go
And glean in his vineyard today;
The harvest is great and the lab'rers are few,
Lord, send in more reapers we pray;
The fields are all white with the ripe golden grain,
The harvest will now soon be done;
Go work in his vineyard, 'twill not be in vain,
If souls for the Master are won.

Out in the Master's vineyard,
Seeking for souls astray;
Working most gladly for Jesus,
Out in his vineyard today.

2. Then out to the harvest field seeking no rest
Till Jesus our King shall be here;
For him let us each now be doing our best,
For soon, very soon, he'll apear;
Press on with the work that he gives us to do;
Go work in his vineyard today,
Go, seeking each moment his blest will to know,
And constantly work, watch and pray. [Chorus]
