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

235. Confiding Prayer

1 Lord, my petition heed,
Now help me in my need,
My Saviour be;
I am your servant, Lord,
My trust is in Thy word,
Mercy to me afford,
I cry to Thee.

2 Comfort Thy servant now,
While at Thy throne I bow,
For Thou art love.
Thy pard'ning grace is free;
Sinners who call on Thee
Thy tender mercy see;
O God above.

3 Lord, hear me when I pray,
While now in trouble's day
I seek Thy face.
To answer, Lord, is Thine;
Thou only art divine,
Most bright Thy glories shine,
O God of grace.
