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 from morn till night,
Bringing lambs to the fold,
Gathering jewels bright
For your crown of gold.

Toil on, toil on while there is light,
Toil for the right,
Soon cometh night;
Toil on, toil on, win for your crown
Jewels fair and bright.

2 God loves the little child,
Try to win him from sin,
From pathways dark and wild
You may bring him in. [Refrain]

3 None are too poor for Him;
Weak or small He loves all;
Toil ere the light grows dim,
Lest some gem may fall. [Refrain]
