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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Lord, from the heart, and depth of woe

Lord, from the heart, and depth of woe

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Lord from the heart, and depth of woe,
My cry, to thee, I send.
2. Hear, Lord, my voice, and to my prayer,
O let thine ear attend.
3. Should'st thou, O Lord, observe our crimes,
Who could the trial bear ?
4. But there forgiveness is with thee,
That thou may'st be our fear.

5. My soul doth for Jehovah wait;
And I hope in his word.
6. No watchmen long for dawning light,
As my soul for the Lord.
7. Let Israel trust in God, the source
Of all redeeming grace;
8. Who will complete redemption grant,
And all their sins efface.
