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.
1 How should we spend our time?
In folly and in sin?
Nay, rather let us seek while here
Some souls for Christ to win.
Then, up and be doing,
Go, work while you may;
Life swiftly is fleeting,
Why longer delay?
Press onward to battle,
Be strong in the Lord;
He’ll bear you up bravely,
Go, trusting His Word.
2 How should we spend our time?
In heaping worldly gains?
Oh, no, we’ll lay our treasure up
In Heav’n, where Jesus reigns. [Refrain]
3 How should we spend our time?
To gain th’applause of man?
No, no, we’ll work, and always seek
To praise the great I AM. [Refrain]
4 Then let us treasure time,
And live in doing good,
Remembering that to God we owe
Our lasting gratitude. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #2705
