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 O Gracious Saviour pity me!
My soul is fill'd with grief,
To whom or whither can I flee?
to find or get relief.
2 My sins lie heavy on my heart,
And vex my troubled soul,
My only hope and trust thou art,
My sorrows to control.
3 When on my case I meditate,
And see what sin prevails;
And I do feel my helpless state,
My heart it shrinks and fails.
4 Tho' I am weak and faint and poor,
Thy mercies still abound;
Thy grace affords a bounteous store
Where life and peace is found.
5 Thy sacred word does fully prove,
That dying sinners may
Obtain a pardon from above,
For which my God I pray!Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCXCVIII
