Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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.
