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

Savior, When in Tears and Dust

Author: Robert Grant Hymnal: The New Century Hymnal #185 (1995) Meter: 7.7.7.7 D Topics: Ash Wednesday; Year A Ash Wednesday; Year B Ash Wednesday; Year C Ash Wednesday Lyrics: 1 Savior, when in tears and dust, low we bow to you in trust, When repentant, to the skies scarce we lift our weeping eyes, Mindful how you suffered pain that God's love in us might reign - Help us claim what we would be, hear our solemn litany. 2 By your helpless infant years, by your life of want and tears, By your days of deep distress in the savage wilderness, By the dread mysterious hour of the insulting tempter's power: Turn, O turn a favoring eye, hear our solemn litany. 3 By your hour of dire despair, by your agony of prayer, By the cross, the nail, the thorn, piercing spear, and torturing scorn, By the gloom that veiled the skies o'er the dreadful sacrifice: Listen to our humble cry, hear our solemn litany. 4 By your deep expiring groan, by the sad sepulchral stone, By the vault whose cold abode held in vain the rising God: O from earth to realms of light, Christ restored in power and might, Listen, listen to the cry of our solemn litany.
