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

1. Oh, what wilt thou do when the night cometh on,
When daylight is fading and hope nearly gone;
When fears shall oppress thee, and dark billows roll,
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul?

Refrain
What wilt thou do? What wilt thou do?
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul?

2. Oh, what wilt thou do when the tide riseth high,
When life is departing and death draweth nigh;
The vain things of earth have no pow’r to console;
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul? [Refrain]

3. Oh, what wilt thou do in the great judgment day,
When Heaven and earth shall have all passed away;
When thy doom is sealed and the death knell shall toll,
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul? [Refrain]

4. Oh, fly to the refuge, while still there is time,
While God offers pardon and healing divine;
There, safe in that shelter, sweet peace shall control;
For then evermore ’twill be well with thy soul.

Haste while there’s time, haste while there’s time,
For then evermore ’twill be well with thy soul.
