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 ‘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]
