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

We feel thy awful chastening rod

We feel thy awful chastening rod

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 We feel thy awful chast'ning rod,
Thy sovereign justice we adore;
Yet we approach thy feet, O God,
Thy boundless mercy to implore.

2 Teach us to mourn for all our guilt;
May reformation fill the land;
No more may human blood be spilt,
But love and joy each heart expand.

3 To thee, O Lord, to thee alone,
We look for help, while drown'd in tears.
Send down salvation from thy throne;
Subdue our hearts, remove our fears.

4 Unite our souls to trust thy grace;
Portentous, angry clouds dispel;
Let party-feuds no more have place,
Nor tongues be "set on fire of hell."

5 May the kind spirit of thy Son
Preside and rule in ev'ry soul;
That wars may cease, thy will be done,
And praise resound from pole to pole.
