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.
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]Source: The Ark of Praise #53
