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

O Lord, who hidest all our shame

O Lord, who hidest all our shame

Author: F. W. Howe
Tune: SERENITY (Wallace)
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Lord, who hidest all our shame
Beneath thy crimsoned hand,
We feel thy touch, we trust thy name,
We yield to thy command.

2 We had no courage in the strife,
No shelter in retreat;
But thou hast glorified our life,
We lay it at thy feet.

3 Be thou our King our hearts are thine
Do with us as thou wilt,
So nevermore thy love divine
Be wounded for our guilt.

4 We ask no ease nor joyous hours
To use for self alone;
Take thou our thoughts, our ransomed pow'rs,
And make them all thine own.
