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.

816. I Am from Sin Set Free

1 Let worldly minds the world pursue,
It has no charms for me;
Once I admired its trifles, too,
But grace hath set me free.

Refrain:
Free! free! free!
I am from sin set free!
This world has now no charms for me,
For Christ hath set me free.

2 Its pleasures can no longer please,
Nor happiness afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these,
Now, I have seen the Lord. [Refrain]

3 As by the light of op’ning day,
The stars are all concealed;
So earthly pleasures fade away,
When Jesus is revealed. [Refrain]

4 Creatures no more divide my choice,
I bid them all depart;
His name, His love, His gracious voice,
Have fixed my roving heart. [Refrain]
