Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

195. Yield Not to Temptation

1 Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
each vict'ry will help you some other to win;
fight valiantly onward, dark passions subdue.
Look ever to Jesus, he'll carry you through.

Refrain:
Ask the Savior to help you,
comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
he is willing to aid you,
he will carry you through.

2 Shun evil companions, bad language disdain;
God's name hold in rev'rence, nor take it in vain;
be thoughtful and earnest, kind-hearted and true.
Look ever to Jesus, he'll carry you through. [Refrain]

3 God saves us in trial, God gives us a crown;
through faith we shall conquer, though often cast down;
Christ Jesus our Savior our strength will renew.
Look ever to Jesus, he'll carry you through. [Refrain]
