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

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!

Refrain:
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]
