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

The grace of God be with you hence

The grace of God be with you hence

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The grace of God be with you hence,
And heav'nly aid afford,
To be your shield and sure defence,
To serve your blessed Lord.

2 Like faithful soldiers act your part,
And never yield to sin,
But seek the Lord with all your heart,
The precious prize to win.

3 Remember well the covenant,
That which you now have made,
To bear the Cross, be ye content',
With Christ your living head.

4 O keep in view the great reward,
Look to the life to come,
Which you shall have when Christ your Lord
Shall come to take you home.

5 Lord grant us grace with confidence,
To bear our crosses here,
That when thou callest us from hence,
We may with joy appear.
