Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Let thy sweet mercies also come

Let thy sweet mercies also come

Full Text

41 Let thy sweet mercies also come
and visit me, O Lord;
Ev’n thy benign salvation,
according to thy word.

42 So shall I have wherewith I may
give him an answer just,
Who spitefully reproacheth me;
for in thy word I trust.

43 The word of truth out of my mouth
take thou not utterly;
For on thy judgments righteous
my hope doth still rely.

44 So shall I keep for evermore
thy law continually.
45 And, sith that I thy precepts seek,
I’ll walk at liberty.

46 I’ll speak thy word to kings, and I
with shame shall not be mov’d;
47 And will delight myself always
in thy laws, which I lov’d.

48 To thy commandments, which I lov’d,
my hands lift up I will;
And I will also meditate
upon thy statutes still.
