Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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’s a call to work in the fields today,
The lost must be gathered in,
Can the Lord of the Harvest depend on me,
To help Him some soul to win?

Refrain:
Can the Captain depend on me,
Ever ready and true to be,
When I hear Him say, “Go and work today.”
Can the Captain depend on me?

2 Should He bid me speak to my dearest friend,
Or to lift up a fallen foe,
Would I bear from His feet the message sweet,
And forth in His service go? [Refrain]

3 There’s a call to pray’r to the field today,
‘Tis the voice of His love and care,
And the soul of some lost one e’en now may wait,
The answer to my prayer. [Refrain]
