Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Brother, heed the warning cry,
O’er and o’er repeating,
Death and woe are drawing nigh
As your pulse is beating.

Brother, make a start for Heaven now;
Hear the invitation given now;
Tomorrow may be never,
And woe your portion ever!
Brother, make a start for Heaven now!
Just now, just now.

2 Brother can you heedless hear,
How the Savior suffered?
How that groans and blood and tears
Bought the pardon offered? [Refrain]

3 Life you feel in every vein,
Think you death’s retreating?
You forget that grain by grain
Life and time are fleeting. [Refrain]
