Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Do you long for the prize

Full 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]
