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 work for everyone,
Work, work, work for God;
Soon the seed time will be gone,
Work, work for God.
God, in whom we live and move,
Bids thee all thy time improve,
Show thy faith by works of love,
Work, work for God.

2 Scatter broadcast precious seed,
Work, work, work for God;
To temptations give no heed,
Work, work for God.
Do not mind what others say,
Ever keep the narrow way,
Work, while it is called today,
Work, work for God.

3 By thyself first pure in heart,
Work, work, work for God;
Then thy joy to all impart,
Work, work for God.
Tell the story of the cross,
Counting earthly things but dross,
Thou shalt never suffer loss,
Work, work for God.

4 Laud the right, condemn the wrong,
Work, work, work for God;
All results to Him belong,
Work, work for God.
Find thy joy in God’s sweet will,
Every promise He’ll fulfill,
And His peace will keep thee still,
Work, work for God.
