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.

Representative Text

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]
