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.

Let wilful sinners boast and say

Let wilful sinners boast and say

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let wilful sinners boast and say,
The Lord will never come:
We need not fear a future day,
Or wait a fearful doom.

2 The things wherof we have been told
That they should come to pass;
Are now just as they were of old,
And will forever last.

3 For, since the fathers fell asleep,
The world has took no change;
Should God our crimes in mem'ry keep,
That would be very strange.

4 Just so it was, before the flood,
Tho' men had long been warn'd;
They still despis'd the threats of God!
And lived unconcern'd.

5 When long they had despis'd his grace;
At last they found it true;
When suddenly a change took place,
Which prov'd their overthrow.

6 The righteous judgments of the Lord,
At his appointed times;
Proves daring sinners' just reward
For all their guilt and crimes.
