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 There is nothing that can hinder any task we have in hand,
If we labor in the name of the Lord;
And the house that we are building will become a temple grand,
If we labor in the name of the Lord.

Refrain:
If we labor in the name off the Lord,
If we labor in the name of the Lord,
At the setting of the sun,
He will say to us: “well done,”
If we labor in the name of the Lord.

2 With the Rock as tis foundation, waters cannot overflow,
If we labor in the name of the Lord;
And no storm that may betide it shall the temple overthrow,
If we labor in the name of the Lord. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twill become the habitation of His spirit, love, and grace,
If we labor in the name of the Lord
And from beating rain and tempest it will be a hiding place,
If we labor in the name of the Lord.
