Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Know, ye that are of Adam's race

Know, ye that are of Adam's race

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Know, ye that are of Adams race,
That God hath called you by his grace;
And has proclaimed his gospel loud,
For to give warning, to the proud.

2 Ye youthful virgins stop, and pause,
And think upon your Saviors laws;
Let not your life which God has lent,
Alone in vanity be spent.

3 Awake to thought! ye tender souls,
And think, alas! we are but fools,
To spend our time, which ends in strife,
And lose this glorious scene of life.

4 Your life to God must be resigned;
Your mind in Jesus be confined;
For word and action must agree,
If Jesus Christ shall set you free.

5 That servant form you must put on,
And think that Christ's before me gone,
He is the way, the truth, and life,
Therefore forsake this world of strife.
