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 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you leave your sinful way?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you bear the cross for Him?
Oh, will you start the prize to win?
I will, I will.

Refrain:
I’ll give up sin, the prize to win,
And meekly bear the cross for Him,
I will, I will.

2 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you walk the narrow way?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you persecutions bear,
And fight a starry crown to wear?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

3 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you come without delay?
I will, I will.
Will you give up the world this hour,
And prove His mighty saving pow’r?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

4 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Despite what men and demons say?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you stand with Christ alone,
The Rock of Truth and Corner Stone?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

5 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you speak and sing and pray?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you read the word He’s giv’n,
And do His will as ’tis is heav’n?
I will, I will. [Refrain]
