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

Where There's Drink, There's Danger

Write it on the liquor store

Representative Text

1 Write it on the liquor store,
Write it on the prison door,
Write it on the ginshop fine,
Write, aye write this truthful line-
"Where there's drink there's danger;"
"Where there's drink there's danger."

2 Write on the workhouse gate,
Write it on the schoolboy's slate,
Write it on the copybook,
Where the young may often look-
"Where there's drink there's danger;"
"Where there's drink there's danger."

3 Write it on the nation's laws,
Trampling out the license clause,
Write it on the ballot white,
So it can be read aright:
"Where there's drink there's danger;"
"Where there's drink there's danger."

4 Write it over ev'ry gate,
On the church, the halls of state,
In the heart of ev'ry band,
On the laws of ev'ry land-
"Where there's drink there's danger;"
"Where there's drink there's danger."
