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 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]
