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’s much we can do if we work with a will,
No time to be wasted today;
The Master is ready our labors to bless,
And wages he offers to pay.

Refrain:
No time to be wasted for many the fields,
And laborers, as ever, are few;
Away to the work that is needing a hand!
So much! O so much we can do!

2 So much we can do in the sowing of seed,
Some fields are yet barren and waste,
The foe will be busy in spreading the tares,
Then go, and be working with haste. [Refrain]

3 So much we can do in the reaping of wheat,
Some fields for the harvest are white;
So much may be lost when the harvest is past,
If left to the mildew and blight. [Refrain]
