Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 We are workers in the vineyard of the Lord,
And we labor day by day;
For we study well his holy word,
And we hourly watch and pray.

We will work in the vineyard,
And we’ll hourly watch and pray;
We will work in the vineyard,
We will work in the vineyard ev’ry day.

2 Though our hands are very small, our faith is strong,
We will work with strength and might;
And we’ll help the Master’s cause along,
And battle for the right. [Refrain]

3 When this life of toil and labor are all o’er,
And our trials are all past;
We will praise his name for evermore,
That we’re safely home at last. [Refrain]
