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

XXVIII. The way of life remain'd conceal'd

1 The way of life remain'd conceal'd
To all the human race,
Until the Saviour was reveal'd
Who purchas'd pard'ning grace.

2 The moral law was never giv'n
To be the saving means;
To fit us for the courts of heav'n,
Or cleans us from our sins.

3 The law can never work that love
That forms the mind anew.
But judge, condemn and still reprove
In all we think or do.

4 But when that true and living faith
Is to the heart applied;
then as the great Apostle saith:
We shall be justified.

5 All male and female, Jew and Greek,
And ev'ry bond and free!
And all who for salvation seek,
The heirs of grace shall be.

6 Thus made the heirs of grace indeed
In spirit circumcis'd:
With Abram and his faithful seed,
For which we were baptis'd.
