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

490. Out of the Deep I Call

1 Out of the deep I call
to thee, O Lord, to thee.
before thy throne of grace I fall;
be merciful to me.

2 Out of the deep I cry,
the woeful deep of sin,
of evil done in days gone by,
of evil now within;

3 Out of the deep of fear
And dread of coming shame;
all night till morning watch is near
I plead the precious name.

4 Lord, there is mercy now,
as ever was, with thee.
Before thy throne of grace I bow;
be merciful to me.
