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.

Should we our members yield

Representative Text

1 Should we our members yield?
To act unrighteousness;
Who have the will of God reveal'd,
And his dear name profess.

2 Yet once it was our case,
We were to sine enslav'd--
But by a wond'rous act of grace:
Renew'd again and sav'd.

3 We dare not yield to sin,
Tho' grace to us abounds--
Lest we enslave ourselves again,
And mock the Saviours wounds.

4 How much could we be blam'd,
To nourish such a root?
Whose growth would make us feel ashamed
When once it shews it fruit.

5 Rewards of sin is death,
Of body and of soul;
But every true believer hath,
That which can make him whole.

6 Life is the gift of God,
For Jesus sake 'tis giv'n.
The shedding of the Saviour's blood,
Will make them heirs of heav'n.
