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 Why not turn to Jesus
While in pray’r we bow?
Why not trust the gracious Saviour,
Why not trust Him now?

Why not? Why not?
Why not trust Him now?
He will never, never fail you,
Why not trust Him now?

2 Why not let Him conquer
Ev’ry doubt and fear?
Why not find your all in Jesus,
He is waiting here? [Refrain]

3 Why not leave the glitter
For the wealth of love?
Why not turn from sin forever,
Why not look above? [Refrain]

4 Why not trust Him only?
He will surely be
Dear on earth and ever dearer
Thro’ eternity. [Refrain]
