We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

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]
