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

We shall reap as we have sown

Representative Text

1 We shall reap as we have sown in the world’s broad field,
Reap as we have sown,
Reap as we have sown;
Every loving deed we’ve done shall a harvest yield,
When the Lord shall claim His own.

Refrain:
And when our work is ended, we shall wear a crown,
We shall wear a crown,
We shall wear a crown;
And when our work is ended, we shall wear a crown,
And we’ll rest with Christ at home.

2 Let us sow the seeds of love by the waters still,
Sow the seeds of love,
Sow the seeds of love,
For the work that we may do shall a mansion fill,
When the Lord shall claim His own. [Refrain]

3 There are lonely hearts to cheer as the days go by,
Lonely hearts to cheer,
Lonely hearts to cheer;
There are erring ones to guide to the home on high,
When the Lord shall claim His own. [Refrain]

4 Soon the reaping time shall come for the seeds we’ve sown,
Reaping time shall come,
Reaping time shall come,
And we all shall then appear at the judgment throne,
When the Lord shall crown His own. [Refrain]
