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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

As by one's sin fell all our kin

Representative Text

1 As by one's sin fell all our kin,
Conceived and born sin-stained,
So by One's grace, who took the place
Of all, are all regained,
Of all, are all regained.

2 The blood-red tide from Christ's cleft side,
Shed for the good of all,
Is laver pure to cleanse and cure
All lost in Adam's fall,
All lost in Adam's fall.

3 Of it are born, though once forlorn,
The saints in Him baptized;
Its life receive all who believe
That Jesus is the Christ,
That Jesus is the Christ.

4 His righteousness is crown and dress
Of those who own Him Lord,
Who, sin-oppressed, find in Him rest
And keep His faithful Word,
And keep His faithful Word.

5 To God be praise through endless days,
In whom we live and move,
God--Father, Son and Spirit--One,
The Triune God of Love!
The Triune God of Love!
