During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

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]
