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

525. I Will, I Will!

1 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you leave your sinful way?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you bear the cross for Him?
Oh, will you start the prize to win?
I will, I will.

Refrain:
I’ll give up sin, the prize to win,
And meekly bear the cross for Him,
I will, I will.

2 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you walk the narrow way?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you persecutions bear,
And fight a starry crown to wear?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

3 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you come without delay?
I will, I will.
Will you give up the world this hour,
And prove His mighty saving pow’r?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

4 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Despite what men and demons say?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you stand with Christ alone,
The Rock of Truth and Corner Stone?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

5 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you speak and sing and pray?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you read the word He’s giv’n,
And do His will as ’tis is heav’n?
I will, I will. [Refrain]
