During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Come, let us go and die with him

Come, let us go and die with him

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Come let us go and die with him,
Who was content to die for us;
Let's wound and crucify those Sins
That nail'd our Saviour to the Cross.
May holy Indignation raise
A just Revenge in ev'ry Breast!
May ev'ry Soul the JESUS loves,
The very thoughts of Sin detest!

2 Hence all ye viprous Brood of Vice,
That bring a Train of endless Woes;
O how I hate you mortally,
As mine, and as my Saviour's Foes!
Hence all your vain deluding Arts,
Which the unwary soul beguile;
These have no Charms for one that sees
Redeeming Mercy on him smile.

3 My Robes, when wash'd in sacred Blood,
Shall I again with Blots deface?
My Soul, by Grace advanc'd to Heav'n,
Shall I again to Hell debase?
Prevent me O almighty Grace!
Nor let me e'er so treacherous prove,
To crucify my Lord afresh,
And render Hate for all his Love!

4 His Life the Model he of mine;
His Word the Rule to guide my Ways;
His Cross the Death of all my Crimes;
His Love the Subject of my Praise.
