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.

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.

Representative Text

1 Hark! from the regions of darkest night.
Cries of a soul in an awful plight;
Pleading for mercy, no hope in sight,
Forever from paradise lost.

Forever from paradise lost!
Forever from paradise lost!
Lost! lost!
Forever from paradise lost!

2 Sinners, now tremble, our Lord is King,
Plenteous pardon he waits to bring;
Yet, if you hold to one sinful thing,
You’ll die and forever be lost. [Refrain]

3 Sad it will be if you miss the prize,
When it is waiting beyond the skies—
Offered so free ere man hopeless dies—
Forever from paradise lost! [Refrain]

4 List to the warning, immortal soul,
Soon will your death-knell in sadness troll;
Oh, the great anguish while ages roll!—
Forever from paradise lost! [Refrain]
