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

154. Buried with Jesus

1 Down into the flowing river,
Lo, the Lamb of God we see;
There He speaks in clear example:
“Take the cross and follow Me.”

Refrain:
Gently buried with my Savior,
Let me sink beneath the wave;
Crucified to earth forever,
Hence alone to God I live.

2 Now the sacred waters cover
O’er the holy Son of God;
Thus He washed me in that fountain
Of His sin-atoning blood. [Refrain]

3 Crucified with my Redeemer,
Now I sink into the grave;
I am dead to sin forever,
By the life of God I live. [Refrain]

4 Here I witness a confession,
As I merge from human sight
In the tomb of yielding water,
That the blood has made me white. [Refrain]

5 Oh, how sweet to follow Jesus
In this ordinance, to show
That we’re cleansed in life’s pure river,
Even whiter than the snow. [Refrain]
