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

Ester

Young ladies, all attention give

Tune: ESTER
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Young ladies, all attention give, You that in wicked pleasures live; One of your sex, the other day, Was called by death’s cold hand away. 2. This lesson she has left for you, To teach the careless what to do; To seek Jehovah while you live, And everlasting honors give. 3. Her honored mother she addressed, While tears were streaming down her breast; She grasped her tender hands and said, “Remember me when I am dead.” 4. She called her father to her bed, And thus, in dying anguish said: “My days on earth are at an end, My soul is summoned to attend. 5. “Before Jehovah’s awful bar, To hear my awful sentence there; And now, dear father, do repent, And read the holy Testament.”
