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

O turn from the wine glass away

O turn from the wine glass away

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Oh! turn from the wineglass away,
Nor look on the wine when it's red;
At last, like a serpent at play,
It stings, and the poison will spread.
The eyes it inflames with desire,
The heart with all manner of sin,
It setteth the bosom on fire,
Consuming the spirit within.

2 Oh! turn from the wineglass away,
Nor look on the wine when it's red;
Though urged by the wealthy and gay,
Remember the blood it has shed!
Touch not with the poison thy lips,
If thou wouldst be free from its pains;
For he is in danger who sips:
He only is safe who abstains.
