Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

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.
