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.

Representative Text

1. Blessèd Savior, hear my prayer,
As I kneel before Thee,
Pleading for Thy love and care;
Spread Thy mantle o’er me;
I have wandered from Thy fold,
And my heart is weary,
Traveling thro’ the storm and cold
Of this desert dreary.

2. All unworthy though I be,
Grant me, Lord, Thy favor,
While I humbly bow the knee,
Hear my prayer, O Savior;
For the sins that cause Thee pain,
Give me deep contrition;
Speak Thy cleansing once again,
Pity my condition.

3. Thou dost hear the humblest cry
Which in faith is spoken,
And the radiant, sunlight sky
Speaks Thy love unbroken;
May I walk at Thy dear side,
Ne’er from Thee to sever;
Let me, at life’s eventide,
Dwell with Thee forever.

4. There I’ll praise Thee for Thy love
Which on earth has sought me,
Praise Thee with the hosts above,
For the blood that bought me;
For the matchless wondrous grace
Which to me was given,
And by which I won the race,
Palm, and crown, and Heaven.
