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.
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.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CXI
