Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Lord, I Lift My Soul to Thee

Representative Text

1 Lord, I lift my soul to thee,
O my God, I trust thy might;
let not foes exult o'er me,
shame me not before their sight.

2 Yea, may none be put to shame,
none who wait for thee to bless;
but dishonored be their name
who without a cause transgress.

3 Lord, to me thy ways make known,
guide in truth and teach thou me;
thou my Savior art alone,
all the day I wait for thee.

4 Lord, remember in thy love
all thy mercies manifold,
tender mercies from above,
changeless from the days of old.

5 Sins of youth remember not,
nor my trespasses record;
let not mercy be forgot,
for thy goodness' sake, O Lord.

6 Just and good the Lord abides,
he his way will sinners show;
he the meek in justice guides,
making them his way to know.

7 Grace and truth shall mark the way
where the Lord his own will lead,
if his word they still obey
and his testimonies heed.

8 For thy name's sake hear thou me;
for thy mercy, Lord, I wait;
pardon my iniquity,
for my sin is very great.

9 He who walks in godly fear
in the path of truth shall go;
peace shall be his portion here,
and his sons all good shall know.
