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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Shall I wait, until the sunset
Marks the close of life’s short day,
Ere I give my heart to Jesus,
And his word and truth obey?

No! I will remember Jesus
In this glad accepted hour;
Give myself unto his service,
Yield to his resistless power.

2 Shall I wait for manhood’s vigor;
Thinking that the world’s vain toy,
Will then fail to give me pleasure,
Or give place to other joys? [Refrain]

3 Shall I wait, until the morrow
Brings me nearer to the tomb;
When I know that death’s keen arrow
May before then seal my doom? [Refrain]
