We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 In the glare of earthly pleasure,
In the fight for earthly treasure,
‘Mid your blessing without measure,
Have you forgotten God?

Have you forgotten God?
Have you forgotten God?
O soul, I plead,
Beware! take heed!
Have you forgotten God?

2 You are thoughtful of the stranger
From the palace or the manger,
And the weak you shield from danger—
Have you forgotten God? [Refrain]

3 While His daily grace receiving
Are you still His spirit grieving
By a heart of unbelieving—
Have you forgotten God? [Refrain]

4 While His bounty you’re accepting,
Are you His commands neglecting,
And His call to you rejecting—
Have you forgotten God? [Refrain]

5 See the shades of night appalling,
On your pathway now are falling!
Hear ye not those voices calling—
Have you forgotten God? [Refrain]
