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.
1 Thy grace dear Saviour let me feel
And know my sins forgiv'n;
O stamp me with thy Spirit' seal!
To fit my soul for heav'n.
2 My pardon sealed with thy blood
Will set my soul at rest;
To know that I am born of God,
Would make my truly blest.
3 Grant me a true and living faith,
In this, my fatal hour,
When I must feel the stroke of death
With all its weight and pow'r.
4 O may my trust in thee not fail,
But ever firmly stand;
That passing through the gloomy vale,
I reach the happy land.
5 And when this present life is o'er,
Then take me to thy home,
Where I shall be distress'd no more
And death can never come.
6 May angels bear my soul away,
To where my Saviour reigns,
Where neither death nor Satan may
Afflict my soul again.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCCXXIII
