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

Full Text

1 There’s work for the hand and there’s work for the heart,
Something to do, something to do;
And each should be busy performing his part,
There’s something for all to do.

Refrain:
There’s work for the aged and work for the young,
There’s work for us all and excuses for none,
There’s work for the feeble and work for the strong,
There’s something for all to do.

2 The sick must be soothed and the hungry be fed,
Something to do, something to do;
The naked be clothed and the erring be led,
There’s something for all to do. [Refrain]

3 The Master says “work” and has shown us the way,
Something to do, something to do;
He says “not tomorrow, the time is today,”
There’s something for all to do. [Refrain]
