Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Are you wrecked upon life's ocean?
Loud the waves about you roar,
Still there's hope, you need not perish,
You may reach the heav'ly shore,
Take the lifeboat, take the lifeboat,
See, the Saviour holding out a helping hand;
Wait no longer, take the lifeboat,
Start today for heaven's bright and happy land.
2 Linger not for earthly treasures,
Yonder lies the land of gold,
Friends and loved ones there are waiting,
There are joys for you untold. [Chorus]
3 Precious souls, like you, have lingered,
"Time enough" they gaily said;
Ere the morrow they had perished,
They had numbered with the dead. [Chorus]
4 Take the lifeboat, you are sinking,
Do not wait a moment more,
This may be your final offer,
Hasten now for yonder shore. [Chorus]
