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.
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.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LX
