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

Oppressed with guilt, or grief, or care

Oppressed with guilt, or grief, or care

Published in 9 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Oppress'd with guilt, or grief, or care,
Great God! thy humble suppliants hear.
Though sunk, we ne'er can sink so low,
But thou canst hear the voice of woe.

2 Should'st thou against each evil deed
In strict severity proceed:
By merit, without mercy try'd,
None could be clear'd and justifi'd.

3 But thou forgiveness dost proclaim,
That men may turn and fear thy name.
To thy rich grace, O Lord! we fly,
And on thy promises rely.

4 Ye contrite hearts, who guilt deplore!
Come, seek his face, and sin no more;
Then shall ye know that God is kind,
And full redemption with him find.
