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 Farewell to my pain, and farewell to my Chain,
Farewell to my Loss, and welcome my Gain;
Mu Sins and my sorrows, farewell evermore;
My Soul and all in me, Jehovah adore,
2 The Earthquakes may quake, and the Mountains may break;
Tet never a jot of my Confidence shake. [Chorus]
3 Old Ocean may Rage,a nd fierce Tempest engage;
Yet not of them all shall my courage asswage. [Chorus]
4 The Deeps may rush up, and the Heavens may down stoop;
Yet none of the Boastings demolis my Hope. [Chorus]
5 The Trumpet shall sound, earth and hell shall rebound;
Then my Dust shall all gladly spring forth from the Ground. [Chorus]
6 The king shall descend, & the Skies he shall rend;
then I'll issue forth boldly to welcome my Friend. [Chorus]
7 The Lights of the Sky, in Darkness shall ly;
But Darkness form me shall far away fly. [Chorus]
8 the World it shall die, and expire with a sigh;
But I, as an Eage, shall tower to the Sky. [Chorus]
9 All Love to my God, this Love who bestow'd;
The Kingdom, Power, Glory , to him all are ow'd. [Chorus]
10 How amazing it is! What an Extasy this!
I'm swallow'd I'm lost in an Ocean of Bliss! [Chorus]
