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.

The Lord of the harvest calls

The time of the harvest is nigh

Representative Text

1 The time of the harvest is nigh,
All ripened the waiting fields lie;
The lab'rers are few,
Christ calleth for you
To glean for his garner on high.

The lab'rers ae few;
Christ calleth for you;
Then hasten away,
The Lord of the harvest obey.

2 The Lord of the harvest needs you—
There's work that you only can do;
Then do not delay,
But hasten away
And glean where the toilers are few. [Refrain]

3 Oh, brother, the labor is blest,
And after the toil cometh rest;
Your Saviour and Lord
Will richly reward,
If you will but heed his request. [Refrain]
