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

221. What Would Jesus Do?

1 If the sinful ways of life
You are tempted to pursue,
Just stop and think before you yield—
What would Jesus do?

Refrain:
What, oh, what would Jesus do?
What, oh, what would Jesus do?
When you’re tempted, always stop and think,
What, oh, what would Jesus do?

2 Let your heart from sin be clean,
And your strength in Him renew;
Let meekness in your works be seen—
Thus would Jesus do. [Refrain]

3 If your brother is in need,
And to him you would be true;
Then show your love by word and deed—
Thus would Jesus do. [Refrain]

4 Let your light forever shine,
Keep the will of God in view;
To sinners prove His love divine—
Thus would Jesus do. [Refrain]

5 When you’re to the judgment brought,
Will you always have been true?
Then don’t forget the solemn thought—
What would Jesus do? [Refrain]
