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 Oh, what shall it profit thee, brother,
Houses and acres so broad,
No title to mansions of glory eternal,
And none to the City of God?

Refrain:
What shall it profit thee then?
Tho’ the whole world be thine own,
When the death angel has called for thy spirit,
And mercy forever has flown?

2 Oh, what shall it profit thee, brother,
Friendships to share and to make,
And know not the friendship of Jesus the Saviour,
Of Jesus who died for thy sake? [Refrain]

3 Oh, what shall it profit thee, brother,
Earthly ambition and fame?
If Christ in the life-book of glory eternal
Had never recorded thy name? [Refrain]
