During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Will the pardoning God despise

Will the pardoning God despise

Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Will the pardoning God despise
A poor mourner's sacrifice
One who brings his all to thee,
All his sin and misery;

2 Saviour, see my troubled breast,
Heaving, panting after rest,
Jesus, mark my hollow eye,
Never clos'd and never dry.

3 Listen to my plaintive moans,
Deep uninterrupted groans,
Keep not silence at my tears,
Quiet all my griefs and fears.

4 Good physician, show thine art,
Bind thou up my broken heart;
Aches it not for thee, my God,
Pants to feel the healing blood?

5 Jesus, answer all thy name,
Save me from my fear and shame
Sunk in desperate misery,
Sinner's friend, remember me!
