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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

CLXVIII. Do we not know that solemn word

1 Do we not know that solemn word,
That we are bury'd with the Lord'
Baptiz'd into his death and then,
Put off the body of our sin.

2 Our souls receive diviner breath,
Rais'd from corruption, guilt and death
So from the grave did Christ arise,
And lives to God above the skies.

3 No more let sin or satan reign,
Over our mortal flesh again;
The various lusts we serv'd before,
Shall have dominion now no more.
