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

No time to be wasted

There's much we can do if we work with a will

Full 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]
