We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Farewell to Sin

Representative Text

1 I will part with thee, old master;
This is my firm resolve;
And I’ll boldly state my reason,
Why we must now dissolve.

Refrain:
The wages of sin is death,
The wages of sin is death,
The wages of sin is death, and woe,
And bitter remorse; I’ve found it so;
Bitter, bitter,
Bitter remorse and woe.

2 I have served thee long and faithful,
Confessed you were my lord;
All your way was dark and painful,
And what is my reward? [Refrain]

3 I have given time and talents,
My health and honor, too,
And exposed my soul to torments,
And what did you bestow? [Refrain]

4 You have flattered me, and promised
Much pleasure in your reign;
I have sowed and reaped your harvest,
Now what my wretched gain? [Refrain]

5 While beneath your doleful bondage,
How oft your father came,
Saying, “There is here no passage
Out from your dark domain.” [Refrain]

6 But the blood of my Redeemer
Has saved me through and through,
So, in Jesus’ name, forever
I bid all sin adieu. [Refrain]
