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.

O gracious Savior, pity me

O gracious Savior, pity me

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

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!
