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.

And Then The Savior Turned

Representative Text

1 And then the Savior turned,
On Peter gazing,
A look divine, and yearned
With love amazing.

2 Swiftly to Peter's face
The shame came leaping;
He had denied such grace
And went forth weeping.

3 Lord Jesus, look on me,
Thy kind face turning;
My soul with agony
Of sin is burning.

4 The way is long, I find
My weak steps falling:
O turn, to my dark mind
Thy grace recalling.

5 Oft, oft with contrite eyes
I gaze to heaven;
Then, at Thy look arise
In tears, forgiven.
