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.

Sens of Pardon Desired

Thy presence, Savior, may I feel

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Thy presence, Saviour, may I feel,
O stamp me with thy spirit's seal
LORD< seal my pardon with thy blood,
And let me know I'm born of GOD.

2 One precious drop, LORD JESUS, grant
O! for one precous drop I pant1
By faith apply thy healing blood,
That I may cry, My LORD, my GOD.

3 Sprinkle it on my conscience, LORD,
O let me hear the pow'r ful word,
That rais'd the dead, and chears the soul,
And makes the sin-sick sinner whole.

4 And when this mortal life is o'er,
And pain and sinning is no more,
Receive my soul to thy bless'd home:
O come, LORD JESUS, quickly come!
