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

33 Teach me, O Lord, the perfect way
of thy precepts divine,
And to observe it to the end
I shall my heart incline.

34 Give understanding unto me,
so keep thy law shall I;
Yea, ev’n with my whole heart I shall
observe it carefully.

35 In thy law’s path make me to go;
for I delight therein.
36 My heart unto thy testimonies,
and not to greed, incline.

37 Turn thou away my sight and eyes
from viewing vanity;
And in thy good and holy way
be pleas’d to quicken me.

38 Confirm to me thy gracious word,
which I did gladly hear,
Ev’n to thy servant, Lord, who is
devoted to thy fear.

39 Turn thou away my fear’d reproach;
for good thy judgments be.
40 Lo, for thy precepts I have long’d;
in thy truth quicken me.

Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases, 1787
