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 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.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.) #CCLII
