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 Toil on and pray, O reapers,
Nor falter while you pray;
Let faith and trust in Jesus
Grow stronger day by day.

Toil on and pray, O reapers,
He knows your weight of care;
Toil on, the blessing will be yours,
For He will answer pray’r.

2 Toil on and pray, believing,
Tho’ earthly skies are dim,—
Above the clouds ‘tis sunshine;
Then put your trust in Him. [Refrain]

3 His eye is watching o’er you,
His hand directs your way;
Pray on, till souls are rescued,
And pray’r is lost in praise. [Refrain]
