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

Though, Lord, our hands have not been stain'd

Though, Lord, our hands have not been stain'd

Representative Text

1 Tho', Lord, our hands have not been stain'd
With human blood, by thee restrain'd,
Yet O what seeds of murder wrought
In each revengeful word or thought!

2 Condemen'd, we fall before thy face,
Our only refuge is thy grace;
O wash our souls from ev'ry sin,
And make our guilty conscience clean.

3 Let clamour, wrath and war begone,
Let bitter words no more be known;
Envy and spite forever cease,
Among the saints, the sons of peace.
