We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Weaned from this earth I fain would be

Weaned from this earth I fain would be

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Weaned from this earth I fain would be,
Of sin, of self, of all but Thee;
Reserved for Christ who bled and died,
Surrendered to the Crucified.

2 Securely hid from sin and strife,
The lust, the pomp, the pride of life;
Prepared for heaven; my noblest care
To have my conversation there.

3 Nothing save Jesus would I know;
My friend, and my companion, thou;
Constrain my soul thy sway to own;
Self-will, self-righteousness dethrone.
