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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

411. Heal Us, Immanuel, Hear Our Prayer

1 Heal us, Emmanuel, hear our prayer;
we wait to feel your touch;
deep-wounded souls to you repair,
and, Savior, we are such.

2 Our faith is feeble, we confess;
we faintly trust your word;
but will you pity us the less?
Be that far from you, Lord!

3 Remember him who once applied
with trembling for relief;
"Lord, I believe," with tears he cried;
"O help my unbelief!"

4 She, too, who touched you in the press,
and healing virtue stole,
was answered, "Daughter, go in peace:
your faith hath made you whole."

5 Like her, with hopes and fears we come
to touch you if we may;
O send us not despairing home;
send none unhealed away.
