Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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

Psalm 31:9-16

Full Text

Refrain:
O Lord, You are my God, I trust in You.

1 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in distress.
Tears have wasted my eyes, my throat, and my heart.
2 For my life is spent with sorrow and my years with sighs.
Affliction has broken down my strength and my bones waste away.

Refrain

3 In the face of all my foes I am a reproach,
An object of scorn to my neighbors and of fear to my friends.
4 Those who see me in the street run far away from me.
I am like the dead, forgotten by all, like a thing thrown away.

Refrain

5 I have heard the slander of the crowd, fear is all around me,
As they plot together against me, as they plan to take my life.
6 But as for me, I trust in You, Lord, I say: You are my God.
My life is in Your hands deliver me from the hands of those who hate me.
7 Let Your face shine upon Your servant.
Save me in Your love.
