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

Retirement and Reflection

Hymnal: Poems on Subjects Chiefly Devotional, Vol. 1 #124 (1760) Hymnal Title: Poems on Subjects Chiefly Devotional, Vol. 1 First Line: Hence, vain, intruding world depart Lyrics: I. Hence, vain, intruding world depart, No more allure or vex my heart; Let ev'ry vanity begone, I would be peaceful and alone. II. Here let me search my inmost mind, And try its real state to find, The secret springs of thought explore, And call my words and actions o'er. III. Reflect how soon my life will end, And think on what my hopes depend, What aim my busy thoughts pursue, What work is done, and what to do. IV. Eternity is just at hand; And shall I waste my ebbing sand, And careless view departing day, And throw my inch of time away? V. Eternity, tremendous sound! To guilty souls, a dreadful wound; But oh! if Christ and heav'n be mine, How sweet the accents! how divine! VI. Be this my chief, my only care, My high pursuit, my ardent pray'r, An int'rest in the Saviour's blood, My pardon seal'd, and peace with God. VII. But should my brightest hopes be vain, The rising doubt, how sharp its pain! My fears, O gracious God, remove, Confirm my title to thy love. VIII. Search, Lord, O search my inmost heart, And light, and hope, and joy impart; From guilt and error set me free, And guide me safe to heav'n and thee. Languages: English
