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.

My sins appear in dark array

My sins appear in dark array

Author: Edward Payson Hammond
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My sins appear in dark array;
I have no hope of heaven;
I've nought wherewith my debt to pay,
Oh, can I be forgiven?

Save, save, O Jesus, save,
Save a poor sinner while crying,
Save, save, O Jesus, save,
Save a poor sinner from dying!

2 I know 'tis just that I should die;
My guilt I now confess;
But to thy Son I lift mine eye,--
For his sake wilt thou bless.

3 In his own body on the tree,
He bore my guilt and shame;
'Twas there he suffered death for me,
I plead alone his name.

4 Thy law would shut me up in hell;
But thanks, O God, to thee,
My Saviour died that I might tell
How grace can make me free.
