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.

Farewell to my pain, and farewell to my chain

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

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]
