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.

Unto the Lord my gracious God

Unto the Lord my gracious God

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Unto the Lord, my gracious God,
I offer humble praise;
Whose mercies are to me renew'd'
Which I enjoy always.

2 How great his love to me has been,
Beyond the reach of mind;
Though I have spent this day in sin,
His mercies still I find.

3 This day is gone, and spent and past,
And will return no more:
Thus to eternity I haste,
With ev'ry fleeting hour.

4 With ev'ry closing of the day,
And setting of the sun.
My precious moments fly away,
And choicest minutes run.

5 Could I but know how vile I am,
And feel my wretched state:
My soul would fill with fear and shame,
With sorrow and regret.

6 O wretched in my state indeed,
I must confess and own;
And what can I poor sinner plead?
In all that I have done.

7 For Jesus' sake my sins forgive!
Cause me in peace to sleep;
In thy protection me receive,
And safely there to keep.
