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 laborers in the harvest field,
We will work with our might today;
While our Savior says there is work to do,
We will bear the sheaves away.

Go work, all must work,
We will work with our might today;
For the wheat may fall in the woods so tall,
We will bear the sheaves away.

2 Tho’ the fight be long, and our foes be strong,
We will work in God’s highway;
And we’ll help the weak, and will soothe the sick,
This will bear the sheaves away. [Refrain]

3 Then we’ll brave the fight, for we know we’re right,
And our Savior leads the way;
We will sing and work, and no duty shirk,
We will bear the sheaves away. [Refrain]
