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.

My warfare now will soon be o'er

My warfare now will soon be o'er

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My warfare now will soon be o'er,
My struglings will be past,
And I shall pant and groan no more,
But be reliev'd at last.

2 I soon shall breathe my latest breath,
And see an end to pain;
Therefore I will submit to death!
For I shall live again.

3 Sure I can never be deceiv'd
By him who died for me;
By him I was from death repriev'd
And set at liberty.

4 Not all the pow'rs of sin and death
Against me can prevail;
Nor all the force from Hell beneath,
Shall cause his word to fail.

5 My Saviour bears me safely through,
And brings me to that place;
Where all his glories I shall view,
And ever see his face.

6 Why should I fear to go from hence,
This present life to end;
I have establish'd confidence,
That Jesus is my friend.

7 My troubles and my sorrows cease,
And I shall be at rest;
My soul shall enter into peace,
And be with Jesus bless'd.

8 My soul desires to leave this clay,
And find a better home;
And wait that bless'd and happy day:
To see my Saviour come.
