Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. Righteous Father, we have wronged Thee,
Underfoot Thy laws have cast:
Now we fain would serve Thee better,
O forgive us what is past.

2. Loving Jesus, we have hurt Thee,
Yielded to temptation’s blast:
Now we long to stand more firmly,
O forgive us what is past.

3. Holy Spirit, we have grieved Thee,
Sin and death have held us fast:
Now we yearn for life and freedom,
O forgive us what is past.

4. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God eternal, first and last,
Penitent we kneel before Thee,
O forgive us all the past.
