Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 There’s a work for you to do,
Lend a hand,
God is seeking help of you,
Lend a hand;
See, his harvest field is white,
We may perish in a night,
Go and reap with all your might,
Lend a hand.

Refrain:
Lend a hand,
Lend a hand,
There is work for you to do,
Lend a hand,
Lend a hand,
Lend a hand,
God is calling for workers;
Lend a hand.

2 There’s an evil world to win,
Lend a hand,
From its evil and its sin,
Lend a hand;
Christ will help you in the task,
There is nothing more to ask,
In his favor you shall bask,
Lend a hand. [Refrain]

3 There’s a crown for those who work,
Lend a hand,
There is none for those who shirk,
Lend a hand;
If we toil till set of sun,
When the glorious work is done,
We shall shine forth as the sun,
Lend a hand. [Refrain]
