Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1.
Since man by sin has lost his God,
He seeks creation through;
And vainly strives for solid bliss,
In trying something new,
In trying something new,
And vainly tries for solid bliss,
In trying something new.

2.
The new possessed like fading flowers,
Soon loses its gay hue:
The bubble now no longer stays,
The soul wants something new,
The soul wants something new,
The bubble now no longer stays,
The soul wants something new.

3.
Now could we call all Europe ours,
With India and Peru;
The mind would feel an aching void,
And still want something new.
And still want something new.
The mind would feel an aching void,
And still want something new.

4.
But when we feel the power of Christ,
All good in him we view;
The soul forsakes her vain pursuits,
In Christ finds something new.
In Christ finds something new.
The soul forsakes her vain pursuits,
In Christ finds something new.

5.
The joy the dear Redeemer gives,
Will bear a strict review
Nor need we ever change again
For Christ is always new.
For Christ is always new.
Nor need we ever change again
For Christ is always new.

6.
Come, sinners, then and seek the joys
Which Christ bids you pursue;
And keep the glorious theme in view,
In Christ seek something new.
In Christ seek something new.
And keep the glorious theme in view,
In Christ seek something new.

7.
But soon a change awaits us all,
Before the great review;
And at his feet with rapture fall,
And heaven brings something new.
And heaven brings something new.
And at his feet with rapture fall,
And heaven brings something new.
