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

As the Galatians vainly dreamed

As the Galatians vainly dreamed

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 As the Galatians vainly dream'd,
The ease can never be;
Man is not by the law redeem'd,
Nor yet by works made free.

2 Not by the deeds of any law
Can any man be sav'd,
But always kept in fear and awe,
And yet remain deprav'd.

3 The carnal mind will e'er remain
At enmity with God,
Until the soul is born again,
And cleans'd by Jesus' blood.

4 It was by covenant of grace,
That God in Christ had made;
He justified the fallen race,
For which the Saviour bled.

5 O, why should we be so unwise!
To trust to what we do;
To rush on such an enterprize,
That cannot bear us through.
