Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Lord to thee I make my moan

Full 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.
