Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 Saviour, I come to Thee, my heart with sin defiled;
Heal me, and comfort me, a weak and weary child;
Long have I wandered in the paths of rayless night;
Thou canst the darkness cleave, and speak the dawning light.

Saviour of sinners, hear, O hear my humble prayer;
Low at Thy cross I lie; I can but perish there;
Thou who hast suffered, Thou wilt pity and forgive—
Speak, Lord, the word is Thine that bids the sinner live.

2 Give me a heart of glowing love, to trust Thy grace,
Give me a constant hope in heaven to see Thy face;
Give me an earnest zeal to do Thy holy will,
Give me the strength to bear, Thy purpose to fulfill. [Refrain]
