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

Representative Text

1 To the cross my steps I bend,
Trembling though its light I see;
Lord, the sinners only friend,
Is there mercy still for me?

Refrain:
Grieved and slighted though thou art,
Do not spurn my humble plea,—
At thy feet I lay my heart,—
O my Saviour, look on me.

2 I believe; oh, let my faith,
Thro’ thy grace, prevail with thee;
Snatch me from the brink of death,
O my Saviour, care for me. [Refrain]

3 In the ocean vast and wide
Thou hast said is flowing free
Let me now my sorrow hide;
O my Saviour, smile on me. [Refrain]

4 Not in vain, Redeemer mine,
Did I lift my voice to thee;
I am saved by grace divine;
Thou hast pardoned even me. [Refrain]
