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.
Harry Plantinga

Lord to thee I make my moan

Representative Text

1 Lord, unto thee I make my moan,
when dangers me oppress;
I call, I sigh, complain, and groan,
trusting to find release

2 Hearken, O Lord, to my request,
unto my suit incline,
And let thine ears, O Lord, be pressed
to hear this prayer of mine

3 O Lord our God, if thou survey
our sins, and them peruse,
Who shall escape? Or who dare say,
I can myself excuse

4 But thou art merciful and free,
and boundless in thy grace,
That we might always careful be
to fear before thy face

5 In God the Lord I put my trust,
my soul waits on his will;
His promise is for ever just,
and I hope therein still

6 My soul to God hath great regard,
wishing for him always;
Much more than they that watch and ward
to see the dawning day

7 O Israel, trust in the Lord,
with him there mercy is,
And he doth plenteously afford
redemption unto his.

8 E'en he it is that Israel shall,
through his abundant grace,
Redeem from his offences all,
and wholly them deface.
