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

And shall we then go on to sin

And shall we then go on to sin

Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

And shall we then go on to sin,
that grace may more abound?
Great God, forbid that such a thought
should in our breast be found!

When to the sacred font we came,
did not the rite proclaim,
That, washed from sin, and all its stains,
new creatures we became?

With Christ the Lord we died to sin;
with him to life we rise,
To life, which now begun on earth,
is perfect in the skies.

Too long enthralled to Satan’s sway,
we now are slaves no more;
For Christ hath vanquished death and sin,
our freedom to restore.
