We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

47. Waiting for Pardon and Direction

1 I lift my Soul to GOD,
My Trust is in his Name:
Let not my Foes that seek my Blood
Still triumph in my Shame.

2 Sin, and the Pow'rs of Hell,
Persuade me to despair:
Lord, make me know thy Cov'nant well,
That I may 'scape the Snare.

3 From the first dawning Light
Till the dark Ev'ning rise,
For thy Salvation, Lord, I wait
With ever-longing Eyes.

4 Remember all thy Grace,
And lead me in thy Truth;
Forgive the Sins of riper Days,
And Follies of my Youth.

5 The Lord is just and kind,
The Meek shall learn his Ways,
And every humble Sinner find
The Methods of his Grace.

6 For his own Goodness Sake,
He saves my Soul from Shame,
He pardons (tho' my Guilt be great)
Thro' my Redeemer's Name.
