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 I need Thy pardon, Lord,
Before Thy throne I bow;
On Thy forgiveness I depend,
O send Thy pardon now.

2 Just now, just now,
O send Thy pardon now;
Wash out my sins and make me pure,
O send Thy pardon now.

3 I need Thy pardon, Lord,
My only hope art Thou;
Without Thee all is dark and drear,
O send Thy light just now.

4 I need Thy pardon, Lord,
On me Thy grace bestow;
O cleanse my heart and make it pure,
O send forgiveness now.
