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 We are happy gleaners
In the field below,
Working for the Master,
Singing as we go;
We are merry gleaners,
In the summer bright,
Working from the morning
Till the dewy night.

Singing with the sunshine,
Laughing in the sky,
Waiting for the harvest
Coming by and by.

2 We are happy gleaners,
Finding every day
Golden sheaves of gladness
Falling by the way;
Faithful in our labor,
Patient let us be;
Then a precious harvest
Soon our eyes will see. [Refrain]

3 When our days of toiling
One by one are past,
When our blessed Master
Calls us home at last,
May we go rejoicing
To the world above,
There to glean forever
Fruits of joy and love. [Refrain]
