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.
Harry Plantinga

99a. Repentanace and Faith in the Blood of Christ

1 O God of Mercy, hear my Call,
My Loads of Guilt remove;
Break down this separating Wall,
That bars me from thy Love.

2 Give me the Presence of thy Grace,
Then my rejoicing Tongue
Shall speak aloud thy Righteousness,
And make thy Praise my Song.

3 No blood of Goat, nor Heifer slain,
For Sin could e'er attone;
The Death of Christ shall still remain
Sufficient and alone.

4 A Soul opprest with Sin's Desert,
My GOD will ne'er despise;
A humble Groan, a broken Heart,
Is our best Sacrifice.
