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, won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Oh, won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Don’t think it will be better
To delay it until later,
But remember your Creator
While you’re young.

2 Oh, won’t you love the Savior
While you’re young?
Oh, won’t you love the Savior
While you’re young?
For you He left His glory,
And embraced a cross so gory,
Won’t you heed the melting story
While you’re young?

3 Remember, death may find you
While you’re young!
Remember, death may find you
While you’re young:
For friends are often weeping,
And the stars their watch are keeping
O’er the grassy graves, where sleeping
Lie the young.

4 Oh, walk the path to glory
While you’re young;
Oh, walk the path to glory
While you’re young;
And Jesus will befriend you,
And from danger will defend you,
And a peace divine will send you
While you’re young.

5 Then won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Then won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Why from the future borrow,
When, ere comes another morrow,
You may weep in endless sorrow
While you’re young?
