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

Full Text

1. Live for Jesus, O my brother,
His disciple ever be;
Render not to any other,
What alone the Lord’s should be.

Refrain
Live for Jesus, live for Jesus;
Give Him all thou hast to give;
On the cross the world’s Redeemer
Gave His life that Thou mightst live.

2. Live for Jesus, wandering sinner,
Under Satan serve no more;
Of the promised prize a winner
Thou may’st be, when life is o’er. [Refrain]

3. Live for Jesus in life’s morning;
At the noontide hour be His;
And at eve, when day is turning,
And inherit endless bliss. [Refrain]
