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.

Representative Text

1 When the morning sun is bright,
And the harvest fields are white,
And the ones that should be reaping
In the fields, are loit’ring by;
When the Master’s voice is ringing
O’er the fields of waving grain,
Calling loud for reapers! answer,
“Here am I, Here am I!”

When I hear the voice of my Savior
I will quickly, gladly give to Him the reply,
“Whatsoever Thou wilt have me do to glory Thy name,
Speak, O Lord, Thy servant hearth,
“Here am I, Here am I!”

2 There are famished souls to feed,
There are wand’ring steps to lead
From the depths of sin and darkness;
There are helpless ones that cry;
Who will feed the hungry children,
Who will seek the lost to save?”
Jesus calls you, who will answer,
“Here am I, Here am I!” [Refrain]

3 There are battles yet to win,
‘Gainst the marshaled hosts of sin,
And the Savior, in each conflict
Swift to help, is ever nigh;
When He calls for deeds of daring,
And for loyal hearts and true,
Ready will I be to answer,
“Here am I, Here am I!” [Refrain]
