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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Would you at the harvest

Representative Text

1 Would you at the harvest with the reapers sing?
Would you golden sheaves for Jesus bring?
Careful be in sowing while the hours wing!
We shall reap as we have sown!

We shall reap as we have sown,
Soon the harvest shall be known,
Careful be in sowing while the hours take wing;
We shall reap as we have sown.

2 Would you at the harvest reap a hundred-fold?
Would you know a wondrous joy untold?
Sow with lavish hand while shines the morning’s gold;
We shall reap as we have sown! [Refrain]

3 Would you at the harvest hear the glad “well-done?”
Would you know a crown of glory won?
Earnest be and true till shines the setting sun;
We shall reap as we have sown! [Refrain]
