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

Should we receive that grace in vain

Should we receive that grace in vain

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Should we receive that grace in vain,
That precious gift of God;
And serve our former lusts again,
And slight the Saviours blood.

2 Should we refuse to watch and pray,
And loose what we have gain'd?
That would be casting Christ away,
And all his love disdain'd.

3 The Lord was pleas'd our pray'rs to hear
In the accepted hour:
Now is the time to persevere,
And use the Saviour's pow'r.

4 As faithful servants of the Lord,
Ourselves we must approve--
Attend unto his precious word,
With pure unfeigned Love.

5 To bear assaults on ev'ry hand,
And yet now be dismay'd;
Confirm'd in Christ by faith to stand,
Supported by his aid.
