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

437. I Shall Not Die

1 A precious truth to us is giv’n,
From God’s own Son that came from Heav’n;
And on His word we can rely;
He that believes shall never die.

Refrain:
I shall not die—on Jesus’ breast
I’ll fall asleep, and there I’ll rest;
Though I should sink beneath the sod,
My life is hid with Christ in God.

2 He that believes, though he were dead,
Shall rise again, as Jesus said;
His word is true, He cannot lie;
He that believes shall never die. [Refrain]

3 When cares and toils are all laid down,
My dust is molding in the ground,
There in the presence of His Son;
I shall not die, but I’ll live on. [Refrain]

4 Oh, blessed thought, some day I’ll see
The One who gave His life for me;
Though I should sink beneath the sod,
My life is hid with Christ in God. [Refrain]
