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 Yield not to the tempter; pass by, and be free;
For yielding is ruin, and sorrow for thee;
Why should you now barter the jewel of youth,
With shame for your honor, and wrong for the truth?

Refrain:
Yield not to the tempter; pass by, and be free;
For yielding is ruin, and sorrow for thee.

2 Yield not to the tempter; turn quickly away;
Go, mingle with honor in life’s busy fray;
Fall not from your station, whatever it be;
Keep clear from the danger that beckons to thee. [Refrain]

3 Yield not to the tempter; be firm and be true;
And God, in your weakness, your strength shall renew;
To Him your petition send upward again,
That you may be ever a man among men. [Refrain]
