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.

Woe unto me, how oft I have transgressed

Woe unto me, how oft I have transgressed

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Wo unto me! how oft I have
Transgress'd and gone astray;
To Satan I have been a slave,
And lov'd the sinful way.

2 My God was ever kind to me,
And great has been his love.
How could I so unthankful be;
So disobedient prove.

3 My conscience testify to me,
According to thy word,
That is strict justice I should be,
Accursed from my Lord.

4 O! gracious Lord, I well do know,
That wretched is my case;
But whether can I flee or go,
To reach redeeming grace.

5 Not man nor angel can relieve
My mind with guilt oppress'd:
Not heav'n itself such comforts give,
To set my heart at rest.

6 O blessed Jesus, unto thee,
To thee will I attend;
To thee my refuge, Lord I flee!
Thou art my Lord and friend.

7 Thy suff'rings and thy dying groans;
Thy blood which freely stream'd,
For all my sin and guilt atones;
Bu which I was redeem'd.
