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 Up! and work; behold, the morning
Sheds afar its golden ray;
Can you sleep, when souls are dying?
UP! and labor with the day;
God has called, and you have heard Him;
Will you slight His great command?
Will you plead your want of courage
When before His bar you stand?

2 Do you love the blessed Saviour?
Have you faith in God above?
By a life of self denial
Prove the ardor of your love;
Feed the lambs with hunger pining
In the rugged wilds of sin;
You can find them all around you,
You can help to bring them in.

3 Not the smallest seed you scatter
From your hand shall fall in vain;
You will see the cloud arising,
God will bring the promised rain;
Be content for Him to labor,
Count it gain to suffer loss;
If you wear a crown of glory,
You must win it by the cross.
