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 we work for the Lord
He doth help us each day;
He doth bless us and guide us
In his own perfect way;
Every trial grows sweet,
Every burden grows light,
And his angels will guard us
Through the night, through the night.

2 When we work for the Lord
We have nothing to fear,
For the joy of his presence
Bringeth heaven so near;
While his strong arm upholds,
And we share in his love,
We receive his protection
From above, from above.

3 When we work for the Lord
Every arm groweth strong;
And a sweet inspiration
Floweth forth in a song;
When the work here is done,
He will take us to rest,
We shall dwell in the mansions
Of the blest, of the blest.
