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.

Without Spot and Blameless

Representative Text

1 I’ll rise at early morning hour,
With first effulgent rays,
While nature’s songsters in the bow’r,
Send up their Maker’s praise;
I’ll bow before my God so dear,
And tarry till my heart shall hear
The Spirit’s witness sweet and clear:
“Without spot and blameless.”

2 While proud in heart, at bright midday,
Can find no time for prayer,
My thoughts shall soar from earth away,
To heaven, bright and fair:
Around the fam’ly altar knelt,
My heart with gratitude will melt,
Till blest assurance shall be felt,
“Without spot and blameless.”

3 And when the pleasant evening air
Is dusky with the night,
My soul shall turn to God in prayer,
In heaven’s golden light;
I’ll linger at the great white throne,
Until the thoughts of God are known,
And He shall claim me for His own,
“Without spot and blameless.”

4 With God’s approval on my soul
My body sinks to rest,
No doubts nor waves of trouble roll
Across my peaceful breast;
And through the night that hand so mild
Protects from storms and billows wild
His helpless, trusting, loving child,
“Without spot and blameless.”
