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 work that’s waiting for your hands to do,
Joy to other lives you can bring;
Keep a loyal heart, bravely do your part,
Always in the name of the King!

Refrain:
To run the errands He requires of you,
To send the message He has given you,
Be ever ready, watchful, brave and true,
Always in the name of the King.

2 There’s a work that’s waiting for your lips to speak,
Help to other hearts you can bring;
Tell the word of cheer, help the one that’s near,
Always in the name of the King! [Refrain]

3 There’s a work that’s waiting for your feet to tread,
Help to other souls you can bring;
On His errands speed, go to those in need,
Always in the name of the King! [Refrain]
