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 Hymnary.org, 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

1 "Eternity! where?" It floats in the air;
Amid clamor or silence it ever is there!
The question so solemn "Eternity! where?"
The question so solemn "Eternity! where?"

2 "Eternity! where?" Oh! Eternity! where?
With redeemed ones in glory? or lost in despair?
'Tis one or the other "Eternity! where?"
'Tis one or the other "Eternity! where?"

3 "Eternity! where?" Oh! how can you share
The world's giddy pleasures, or heedlessly dare
Do aught till you settle "Eternity! where?"
Do aught till you settle "Eternity! where?"

4 "Eternity! where?" Oh! friend, have a care;
Soon God will no longer His judgment forbear;
This day may decide your "Eternity! where?"
This day may decide your "Eternity! where?"

5 "Eternity! where?" Oh! Eternity! where?
Friend, sleep not, nor take in the world any share,
Till you answer this question "Eternity! where?"
Till you answer this question "Eternity! where?"
