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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

My sands of life are running fast

Representative Text

1 My sands of life are running fast,
I can't recall one moment past;
I've much to do in little space,
O can I yet be saved by grace?
O can I yet one effort make?
I've much to do in little space,
O can I yet be saved by grace?
O can I yet one effort make?

2 Thus far the Lord has led me on,
and I am near my final home;
So I must halt, recount my thoughts,
And tell the world I'm saved by grace;
This effort is my choice to make.
So I must halt, recount my thoughts,
And tell the world I'm saved by grace;
This effort is my choice to make.
