Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Do you long for the prize

Representative Text

1 Do you long for the prize?
Is it fair in your eyes?
Are you eager to enter the fray?
Begin it; you'll win it
In the name of the Lord--
Trust in Jesus and never give way.

Trust in Jesus and never give way--
Trust in Jesus, watch ever and pray;
Unto those who endure to the end,
O, how sure is his word, they'll be mine in that day.

2 "There is work I would do,
But my talents are few,
And a mountain is set in my way!"
Just do it!
Go through it
In the name of the Lord--
Trust in Jesus and never give way. [Refrain]

3 There are giants so tall,
And my strength is so small!
But in God is our strength for the fray!
As David was saved
In the name of the Lord,
When he trusted and never gave way. [Refrain]
