We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

O Lord, who hidest all our shame

O Lord, who hidest all our shame

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.
