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

Rebuke me not in anger, Lord, Nor cast me quite away

Rebuke me not in anger, Lord, Nor cast me quite away

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Rebuke me not in anger Lord!
Nor cast me quite away,
Nor let me have my just reward,
Have mercy, Lord, I pray.

2 In mercy hear thou my complaint,
O hear my mournful pray'r:
My heart is weak, my soul is faint,
And fill'ed with dread and fear.

3 In death no man rememb'reth thee,
Nor thanks thee in the grace:
In mercy, Lord, deliver me,
And from destruction save.

4 My sorrows and distress of mind,
Are numberless and great;
No peace or comforts can I find,
In this my dismal state.

5 My life is worn with grief and pain,
And all my strength is gone:
O Lord, revive my soul again,
And make thy mercies known.

6 O comfort me in my distress;
On thee my God I call:
Be thou my life and righteousness,
My Saviour and my all.
