We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Death and Glory

In a world of sin and sorrow

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 In a world of sin and sorrow,
Compass'd round with many a care
From eternity we borrow
Hope, that can exclude despair:
Thee triumphant God and Saviour!
In the glass of faith we see;
O assist each faint endeavour!
Raise our earth-born souls to thee.

2 Place that awful scene before us,
Of the last tremendous day;
When to life thou shalt restore us,
Ling'ring ages, haste away!
Then this vile and sinful nature
In corruption shall put on;
Life renewing, glorious Saviour!
Let thy gracious will be done.
