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 There’s a hand that’s writing now
In the book of life, they say;
Ev’ry action, word or deed
Is recorded there each day.

Refrain:
What shall then our record be?
Let us stop and think, I pray!
What shall then our record be,
In the coming judgment day?
In the coming judgment day,
In the coming judgment day,
What shall then our record be,
In the coming judgment day?

Still that hand goes writing on,
Making pages dark or fair;
Let us ponder well, dear friends,
What for us is written there. [Refrain]

Time is ebbing fast away,
Life for us will soon be done;
Can we, trustingly, go hence,
That a crown of life is won. [Refrain]
