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 To you, to you the call rings out,
Go work today, today.
Oh, linger not in fear and doubt,
The Master leads the way.

Go work today, go work today,
To you, to you rings out the call,
Go find your place, and trust His grace,
The Lord hath need of all.

2 Go forth to sow, go forth to reap,
Whatever God’s command.
He gives to each a charge to keep,
He holds the willing hand. [Refrain]

3 In desert waste, in whitening field,
His laborers are found.
Where’er He calls, be swift to yield,
Each place is holy ground. [Refrain]

4 His faithful promise ye have heard,
Let not your faith grow dim,
He calleth you, O blessed word,
Co-laborers with Him. [Refrain]
