We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Work, and thou wilt bless the day, Ere the toil be done

Dana, Charles Anderson. (Hinsdale, New Hampshire, August 8, 1819--October 17, 1897, Glen Cove, Long Island, New York). He was one of the leaders in the Brook Farm Association, 1842; then became a journalist and man of letters; on the staff of the New York Tribune, 1847-1862; Assistant Secretary of War, 1863-1864; editor of the New York Sun, 1868. The hymn beginning "Work, and thou shalt bless the day" which Hedge and Huntington included in their Hymns for the Church of Christ, 1853, and attributed to "C. A. Dana" was probably written while he was engaged in the Brook Farm experiment. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
