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.
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.
