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.
1 When God our Father's pleas'd
For to reveal his Son,
Immediately our Conscience eas'd
Becomes his peaceful Throne.
2 Consult we then no more
Our Senses, Flesh and Blood,
But in the day of heav'nly Pow'r
commence the sons of God.
3 Included all in One,
We now with Rapture tell,
We're in the Father's only son,
In whom he's pleased well:
4 This doth our God make known
To mortal Worms below:
All other Matters we disown,
This only will we know.
5 We leave this World behind,
With all its Faith and Forms,
And live in the eternal Mind,
Free from all Hell's Alarms.
6 What Sense suggests we leave,
With Reason's doubtful Plan,
And in the spirit's Power cleave
To Christ, the perfect Man.
