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

Representative Text

1 All faithful teachers well do know,
Their cases shew them plain;
In all what ever they can do,
They are but feeble men.

2 It is the work of God alone,
By which they are prepar'd;
To such he makes his counsels known,
Contained in his word.

3 By them the word of truth is taught:
And all who will believe,
From death unto that life is brought,
Which Christ himself will give.

4 God's law is written in the mind,
Not on the stone engrav'd;
It makes the will to God resign'd,
No more to sin enslav'd.

5 The letter of the law can kill,
And sink the rebel low;
But cannot change the stubborn will,
Nor yet the mind renew.

6 The law like unto Moses' face,
Does cast a fearful ray;
But O! the glorious word of grace,
Can drive our fears away.

7 O may such glory be reveal'd,
And with influence shine;
Till all our hearts be truly fill's
With love and grace divine.
