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

Real Christians need not fear to die

Real Christians need not fear to die

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Real christians need not fear to die,
Or to depart from here;
Since death bears them to God on high!
Where their great treasures are.

2 No pain or groan, or dying strife,
Should fright their souls away;
Since they shall find a better life
Soon as they leave this clay.

3 Let me depart my Lord! to meet
And stretch my feeble hands:
And grasp the joys that are complete
In yonder happy lands.

4 Then let me bow my dying head
Into the arms of death!
And rest in Christ my dying bed,
And breathe my latest breath.
