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.

Away from Jesus, away from God

Away from Jesus, away from God

Representative Text

1 Away from Jesus, away from God,
Straying afar from the path He trod;
No tho’t of Christ, no time for pray’r,
Death drawing nearer, eternity, where?

Shall it be joy in the ages to come,
Or shall it be endless despair?
Light everlasting, or darkness and gloom,
Eternity, eternity, where?

2 Away from Jesus, no rest or peace,
No true repentance, from sin no release,
Nearer the end, no light shines there,
No one to guide you, eternity, where? [Refrain]

3 Away from Mercy, the Judgment near,
Hopeless and trembling with doubt or fear,
Too late to accept His love and care,
“Guilty” the verdict, eternity, where? [Refrain]
