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.
Harry Plantinga

Now my departure is at hand

Now my departure is at hand

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Now my departure is at hand;
From hence I must remove!
To join the bless'd celestial band
In the bright realms above.

2 My warfare and contests are o'er,
And I can welcome death;
In spite of sin and Satan's pow'r,
I fought and kept the faith.

3 And thus I finished my course,
And passed safely through;
My Lord who conquers ev'ry force,
Made me to conquer too.

4 My conflicts and debates are pass'd,
And my salvation seal'd;
My victories are gain'd at last,
Now as I quit the field.

5 The crown of life laid up for me:
And all who love the Lord;
For all my suff'rings here shall be
A gracious great reward.
