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

38. Remember, sinful youth, you must die

1. Remember, sinful youth, you must die,
Remember, sinful youth, you must die.
Remember, sinful youth,
If you deny the truth,
Through vast eternity, you must die.

2. Uncertain are your days, here below,
Uncertain are your days, here below.
Uncertain are your days,
For God hath many ways
To bring you to your graves, here below.

3. The God that built the sky, great I Am,
The God that built the sky, great I Am.
The God that built the sky,
Hath said and cannot lie,
Impenitents shall die, and be damned.

4. Come then, my friends, don't you, I entreat,
Come then, my friends, don't you, I entreat.
Come then my friends, don’t you
Your sinful ways pursue,
Your precious souls undo, I entreat.

5. But to the Savior flee, 'scape for life,
But to the Savior flee, 'scape for life.
But to the Savior flee,
Lest death eternally
Shall be your destiny, 'scape for life.
