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.

Representative Text

1 When Jesus alone was standing,
By all His friends forgot,
And Peter, near by, denying,
Saying, "I know Him not,"
'Twas then he saw the Savior
Look at him tenderly;
And then, rememb'ring the saying,
Went and wept bitterly.

He tenderly looked at me,
He tenderly looked at me,
He drew me graciously to Him,
When He tenderly looked at me.

2 When drifting away in darkness,
Lost in the blackest night,
Out on the sea of sorrow,
Far from the Blessed Light,
I heard a sweet voice calling,
Calling from o'er the sea,
And then I saw my Savior,
Tenderly look at me. [Refrain]

3 They took my blessed Savior
Out to the mountain side,
And nailed Him there to the cross-tree,
Jesus, the Crucified.
And when I saw my Savior,
Dying on Calvary,
He drew me graciously to Him,
By His kind look at me. [Refrain]
