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.

552. From out the Depths I Cry, O Lord, to Thee

1 From out the depths I cry, O Lord, to thee;
Lord, hear my call.
I love thee, Lord, for thou dost heed my plea,
forgiving all.
If thou dost mark our sins, who then shall stand?
But grace and mercy dwell at thy right hand.

2 I wait for God, the Lord, and on his Word
my hope relies;
my soul still waits and looks unto the Lord
till light arise.
I look for him to drive away my night,
yea, more than watchmen look for morning light.

3 Hope in the Lord, ye waiting saints, and he
will well provide;
for mercy and redemption full and free
with him abide.
From sin and evil, mighty though they seem,
his arm almighty will his saints redeem.
