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.
1 The christian suff'rings here below,
Do not deserve to be compar'd!
Unto the joys God will bestow,
To those who trust unto his word.
2 On this sure promise they may build!
They never need to doubt or fear--
Such glories are in them reveal'd,
Which will repay their suff'rings here.
3 Happy will be the time indeed,
For which the whole creation wait;
When ev'ry creature shall be freed
From their oppress'd and mournful state.
4 In Adam's fall the whole was made,
Subject to vanity and sin--
the curse on all the earth was laid,
And all that is contain'd therein.
5 All creatures may be said to groan,
And travel in distress and pain;
All living creatures, Sun and Moon,
They feel the curse of guilt and stain.
6 But when the blessed sons of God
In all their glory come to view;
When heav'n and earth shall be renew'd,
All creatures are redeemed too.
