We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Lord, I'm defiled in every part

Lord, I'm defiled in every part

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Lord, I'm defiled in every part,
Barren my life, and cold my heart,
Yet sometimes, through thy sovereign grace,
I catch a glimpse of Jesu's face.

2 This gives my drowsy heart a spring,
I fain would rise, and fain would sing;
But soon a cloud rolls in between,
All black with some indwelling sin.

3 My notes then falter on my tongue,
the soul contagion spoils my song;
But Thou, who dost the world control,
Speak but the word, I shall be whole.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799
