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 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.Source: Christ in Song: for all religious services nearly one thousand best gospel hymns, new and old with responsive scripture readings (Rev. and Enl.) #412
