Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative 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.
