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.
1 My loving Lord in sympathy
With tend’rest love came unto me,
And from the depths of misery
With His own hands He lifted me.
With His own hands He lifted me,
With nail-pierced hands He set me free;
From depths of sin and misery,
With blood-stained hands Christ rescued me.
2 So long had I been bound by sin,
So deeply dyed, without, within,
And vain all better life had been,
Till Jesus’ touch had made me clean. [Refrain]
3 Yes, out of darkness into light,
And out of weakness into might,
Then out of blindness into sight
With nail-pierced hands He set me free. [Refrain]
4 Ah! sweet indeed it is to sing
The praises of my Lord and King,
Who even down to me did bring
The song of love and victory. [Refrain]
5 O hallelujah! praise His name,
My blessed Lord, always the same;
The loving One, who bore my shame,
And with His life-blood rescued me. [Refrain]Source: Make Christ King: a selection of high class gospel music for use in general worship and special evangelistic meetings #42
