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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1. "It must be settled tonight,
Tomorrow may be too late;"
The angel of death may come,
And seal forever my fate.

It must be settled tonight,
I can no longer wait,
Peace with my God I now must have,
Tomorrow may be too late.

2. A burden weighs my soul
I can no longer bear;
Unless removed this night,
'Twill sink me into despair.

3. I cannot rest till peace
Enfolds me from above,--
'Till my redeemer speaks to me
Assurance of his love.

4. Oh, now I know 'tis done!
My peace is made with God;
My pardon's found in Jesus' name,
Thro' faith in Jesus' blood.
