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

Representative Text

1 My soul is sad and sinful;
O Father, hear me pray;
Take from my heart this burden,
And bear it far away.

Create in me a clean heart, O God;
renew a right spirit within me.
Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity;
cleanse me from my sin.

2 O cast my sins behind Thee,
Remember them no more;
Look on Thine own Anointed,
The Christ whom I adore. [Refrain]

3 Forgive, O loving Saviour,
My unbelief and sin;
My soul is waiting, longing,
Thy courts to enter in. [Refrain]

4 O give the oil of gladness,
Accept the gift I bring;
Then I will chant Thy praises,
Thy glory will I sing. [Refrain]
