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

Savior, plead for me

Representative Text

1. Saviour of sinners, oh, hear my petition
Weakly I've wandered afar from home and Thee;
Look Thou in pity upon my condition,
And in high heaven, O Saviour, plead for me!

Plead for me, Saviour,
Grant me Thy favor;
Humbly before Thee I
Come on bended knee;
Making confession
Of my trangression,
Wayward and erring
O Saviour, plead for me!

2. Plead for me, Saviour, my pathway is dreary;
Helpless my frail bark, the sport of storm and sea.
Guide Thou my feet to the home of the weary
Welcome the wand'rer O Saviour, plead for me! [Chorus]

3. Plead for me, Saviour! so weak, frail and erring;
Childlike I stretch forth my trembling hands to Thee;
Love, joy and peace thro' Thy rich grace conferring,
Look Thou in mercy O Saviour, plead for me! [Chorus]
