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.

A broken heart, O Lord, Thou never wilt despise

A broken heart, O Lord, Thou never wilt despise

Author: Thomas Raffles
Published in 13 hymnals

Full Text

1 A broken heart, O Lord!
Thou never wilt despise;
'Tis written in thy word,
This is the sacrifice:
The sacrifice that thou wilt own--
It is the broken heart alone.

2 Break thou my heart, O Lord!
The rock within me break;
To tremble at thy word,
And at thine anger quake:
Let me in deep contrition lie,
And heave the penitential sigh.

3 For mercy dwells with thee--
Compassion, all divine;
That mercy show to me;
Be that compassion mine:
For sinners did not Jesus bleed?
And Jesus' blood alone I plead.
