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

399. What Would You Give in Exchange?

1 Brother afar from the Savior today,
Risking your soul for the things that decay,
Oh, if today God should call it away,
What would you give in exchange for your soul?

Refrain:
What would you give? What would you give?
What would you give in exchange for your soul?
Oh, if today God should call it away,
What would you give in exchange for your soul?

2 Mercy is calling you, won’t you give heed?
Must the dear Savior still tenderly plead?
Risk not your soul, it is precious indeed;
What would you give in exchange for your soul? [Refrain]

3 More than the silver and gold of the earth—
More than all jewels thy spirit is worth!
God, the Creator, has given it birth!
What would you give in exchange for your soul? [Refrain]

4 If, when you stand at the bar by and by,
When you are weighed in the balance on high,
You should be sentenced forever to die!
What would you give in exchange for your soul? [Refrain]
