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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Unclean, unclean, and full of sin

Unclean, unclean, and full of sin

Author: Jesse
Published in 18 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Unclean! unclean! and full of sin,
From first to last, alas, I've been!
Deceitful is my heart:
Guilt presses down my burdened soul,
But Jesus can the waves control,
And bid my fears depart.

2 When first I heard his word of grace,
Ungratefully I hid my face,
Ungratefully delayed:
At length his voice more powerful came,
"'Tis I" he cried "I'm still the same,
Thou need's not be afraid."

3 My heart was changed--in that same hour
My soul confessed his mighty power,
I shed a grateful tear;
Then listened still to hear his voice,
Again he said, "In me rejoice,
'Tis I, thou need's not fear."

4 "Unworthy of thy love," I cried,
"Freely I love," he soon replied,
"On me thy faith be stayed;
I'm Jesus still, the sinner's friend.
Thou need'st not be afraid."
