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,

Full Text

1 In this life of pitfalls and dangers
We should be tender and true;
Ever trying to let our light shine,
And be Christians through and through.

We should go where our Master calls us,
And do what He’d have us do;
Trusting for strength in Him always,
And the grace that will carry us through.

2 A kind word lovingly spoken
May cheer a faint heart by the way;
Let us not be one-day Christians,
But be Christlike every day. [Refrain]

3 There are words that should be unspoken,
And deeds that were best undone,
If we would be like the Savior
And a crown with stars be won. [Refrain]
