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

Full Text

1 Where will you spend eternity?
This question comes home to all,
The old, the young, the rich, the poor,
Must answer the solemn call.

Refrain:
Where will you spend eternity?
Do not the answer delay;
Shall all be darkness or marvelous light?
Settle this question to-day.

2 Where will you spend eternity?
Life’s pleasures will soon be o’er;
Their songs and mirth will pass away,
And leave you forevermore. [Refrain]

3 Where will you spend eternity?
Shall all with your soul be well?
Say, will you enter Gates of Pearl,
Or ever in darkness dwell? [Refrain]

4 Where will you spend eternity?
The angels now bend to hear;
O choose to-day a place of rest,
With Jesus, your Friend so dear. [Refrain]

5 Where will you spend eternity?
The dear ones, who’ve gone before,
With longing eyes your coming wait,
O meet them on yonder shore. [Refrain]
