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.

Representative Text

1 “No time for salvation,” I heard a many say,
“No time for my Savior who calls me today,
The world’s pressing business my hands must pursue,
No time for salvation, I have so much to do;”
But he found time to die,
Oh, yes! he found time to die.

2 “No time for salvation,” a young girl once said;
“No, give me the world and its pleasures instead;
With feasting and dancing my days I would fill,
My life’s just beginning there is time enough still;”
But she found time to die,
Oh, yes! she found time to die.

3 “No time for salvation!” Friend, will you not see
No time in the future is promised to thee?
We speak of tomorrow, yet no one can say,
“I’ll live on the morrow, we have only today;
And today we die,
Oh, yes! today we die.
