We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 ‘Tis the harvest time, ‘tis the harvest time,
To the fields I must away;
For the Master now is calling me,
To go and work today.

Gleaning on the hillside,
Gleaning on the plain,
Working for the Master,
‘Mong the golden grain.

2 ‘Tis the harvest time, ‘tis the harvest time,
Oh! who will go along?
See the fields for harvest now are white;
I hear the reaper’s song. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the harvest time, ‘tis the harvest time,
There is work for all today;
If you cannot be a reaper, you
Can bear the sheaves away. [Refrain]
