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.
1 We have toiled in many vineyards,
We have toiled through many a day,
Toiled for thee, O blessed Jesus,
Worn for thee our strength away.
And we still will work for Jesus,
Work for him has blessed pay;
We will ever work for Jesus,
Work for him our lives away.
2 We have toiled through storm and sunshine,
Summer’s heat, and winter’s cold;
Toil is sweet in youth’s bright morning,
Sweet when men are growing old. [Refrain]
3 We have toiled in human gardens,
Digging, sowing, pruning, too,
Praying for the dew and sunshine,
On the work we found to do. [Refrain]
4 Lo! the garden blooms with flowers,
Fragrance fills the blessed air;
Living, dying, precious brethren,
Toil for Jesus everywhere. [Refrain]Source: Beulah Songs: a choice collection of popular hymns and music, new and old. Especially adapted to camp meetings, prayer and conference meetings, family worship, and all other assemblies... #40
