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.

When God our Father's pleas'd

When God our Father's pleas'd

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

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.
