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 Servants of Satan or of the Lord,
Doing their will ever are we;
Death is approaching—which will ye serve?
Choose ye today whose ye will be.

Jesus invites you now to be His,
Satan would ever lead you astray;
Flee from his power before ’tis too late,
Turn to the Lord today,

2 Trust not to Satan, vain is his word;
All of his paths lead to dismay;
Flee from his bondage—turn to the Lord;
Which will ye serve? choose ye today. [Refrain]

3 Lay up your treasure not on the earth;
Naught ’twill avail when life is past;
Like unto Mary, choose ye the Lord;
Serve Him in truth unto the last. [Refrain]

4 Sinner, the Savior asks you to come;
Do not refuse—do not delay;
Jesus has suffered—suffered for you;
Give Him your hearts—choose Him today. [Refrain]
