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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 If I’ve wounded the heart of another today,
Or have caused a lone teardrop to fall;
If I’ve turned in disdain from the helpless away,
Oh! forgive, Thou blest Father of all!

Refrain:
I am bowing before Thee in penitence now,
O compassionate Father, forgive!
Thou alone with Thy peace can my spirit endow,
O compassionate Father, forgive!

2 My transgressions are many, I humbly confess,
But I long in Thy precepts to live;
With the boon of salvation Thou only can bless,
O compassionate Father, forgive! [Refrain]

3 If, when merciless sorrow o’ershadows my soul,
I have sought not Thy guidance each day,
But in folly have strayed where sin’s billows oft roll,
Oh! forgive me, dear Father, I pray! [Refrain]

4 Tho’ I oft have neglected my duty to do,
Disobeying Thy holy command,
And to Thee and Thy cause I have proven untrue,
With the saved I forgiven would stand. [Refrain]
