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.

350. Shall I Die Without a Savior?

1 Shall I die without a Savior?
Shall I lose my precious soul?
Shall I cross death’s chilly river?
Shall I miss yon brighter goal?

Refrain:
Shall I gain a home in heaven?
Shall I live in sin below?
Lose my crown, my soul, and mansion,
And go down to endless woe?

2 Shall I die without a Savior?
Shall I hear His voice no more?
Shall I let my heart grow harder?
Shut myself from mercy’s door? [Refrain]

3 Shall I die without a Savior?
Perish when I see the light?
Still neglecting, doomed forever,
Banished to the darkest night? [Refrain]

4 Shall I die without a Savior?
Perish just in sight of home?
And be lost, yea, lost forever,
Reach my awful, final doom? [Refrain]

5 Shall I die without a Savior?
And yet, hope to make a start?
Still refusing Him to enter,
And thus tighter lock my heart? [Refrain]
