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 “What will you give in exchange for your soul?”
What will it profit you, sinner,
To gain the whole world and then lose your own soul?
Shall I miss it—be lost forever?

Refrain:
Shall I miss it—be lost forever?
Shall I miss it—be lost forever?
“Then, oh, what will you give in exchange for your soul?”
Shall I miss it—be lost forever?

2 “What will you give in exchange for your soul?”
Think of its value, poor sinner,
Oh, can you afford to miss heaven’s bright goal,
Nor share its sweet joys, no never? [Refrain]

3 “What will you give in exchange for your soul?”
Profit and loss are considered;
If you wreck on the shoal where the dark billows roll,
Your hope and your joys are bartered. [Refrain]

4 “What will you give in exchange for your soul?”
Oh, do not stifle conviction;
How can you thus trifle? Oh, come and be whole,
And Jesus will give remission. [Refrain]
