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

The Trumpet Call

There is work to be done in the vineyard

Tune: [There is work to be done in the vineyard]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1. There is work to be done in the vineyard,
there are sheaves to be gathered in;
There are souls to be saved, And the Master saith,
"Go and gather my lambs from the paths of death,
From the broad highway of sin."

2. Go gather them in from the hedges,
Go gather the young and old;
Go and tell how the Shepherd in wondrous love,
Left the light and the glory of heav'n above,
For the lambs straying from the fold.

3. Go work for the glorious Master,
It is strange you should so delay,
When He promises strength if you ask aright,
When His yoke is so easy, His burden light,
And He pledges the best of pay.

4. There is work for you now in the vineyard,
There is work though the hour be late;
There is time yet to turn from a life of sin,
Time to judgment escape and a crown to win;
O why will you longer wait.
