We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

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]
