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

Perseverance

Now Christ again to me appears

Author: Mrs. P.
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Now Christ again to me appears
Banishing all my doubts and fears
With his surprising grace;
He says fear not for you I died,
Remove thy doubts, look in my side,
Thy soul with joy at my right hand
At the last day I'll place.

2 Tho' sin within thee yet remains
Against thy will it's grace that reigns,
And shall the conqu'ror prove;
Sin, earth and hell in vain combine,
To pluck thee from those hands of mine
Thou art secured in the arms
Of everlasting love.

3 Fear not tho' all the earth engage
Against thy soul, with hellish rage;
I'm earths' foundation's prop:
The government is laid on me,
I have all power to succour thee;
Then lean on my eternal arm
I'll not deceive thy hope.

4 They sooner may the mountains move
Than thee destroy or change my love,
Or alter what I swore,
The Sun and Moon may cease to shine,
The Earth and all therein decline;
But my eternal love stands firm
And shall for evermore.
