Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 My friends let me say that wherever you go,
God’s spirit will give you true light;
Escape the temptations, that lead thee astray,
Obey His command and do right.

Refrain:
Oh sinner you think it is hard to be good,
Your conscience will tell you aright,
That christians are happy while living below,—
Obey His command and do right.

2 God’s teaching is plain, why should you refuse,
The promise that gives us delight;
Salvation gives freedom to all who believe,
Obey His command and do right. [Refrain]

3 The joy of salvation is heaven to gain,
Its pleasures are charming and bright;
The blessed Redeemer has promised to keep—
Obey His command and do right. [Refrain]

4 Ye weary ones wrestle as Jacob once did,
Be ready to welcome the light;
Oh think of the favours He offers to you—
Obey His command and do right. [Refrain]
