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?

1 I’ve wandered in darkness, in the valleys of sin;
Afar from my Saviour many years I have been.
The storms rage around me, and I shrink back with fear;
The terrors of judgment seem to be drawing near.
Where is my Lord?
Where is my Lord?
I’m out in the darkness,
Where, O where is my Lord?

2 My heart feels the burdens and sorrows of guilt,
And yet on Mount Calvary Jesus’ life-blood was spilt;
I know that He suffered on the thrice-cursed tree,
But O, can His mercy reach a rebel like me?
Where is my Lord?
Where is my Lord?
I’m out in the darkness,
Where, O where is my Lord?

3 I hope in His goodness for mercy at last,
But strong are the fetters sin around me has cast;
Still doubt, fear and darkness fetter hope, life and trust.
I’m crushed ‘neath the burden, and I lie in the dust.
Where is my Lord?
Where is my Lord?
I’m out in the darkness,
Where, O where is my Lord?

4 O hark! ‘tis my Saviour! Such accents of love,
In tones soft and tender, pouring down from above.
He offers me pardon, and I know He doth save;
He freely forgives me, and I fear not the grave.
Here is my Lord,
Here is my Lord;
I’m safe in His bosom,
Here, O here is my Lord.
