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

Full Text

1 The tender love a father has
for all his children dear--
such love the Lord bestows on those
who worship him in fear.

2 The Lord remembers we are dust,
and all our frailty knows;
our life is like the tender grass,
and as the flower it grows.

3 The flower is withered by the wind
that smites with blighting breath;
so we are quickly swept away
before the blast of death.

4 Unchanging is the love of God,
from age to age the same,
displayed to all who do his will
and reverence his name.

5 Those who his gracious covenant keep
the Lord will ever bless;
their children's children shall rejoice
to see his righteousness.

Psalms For All Seasons 2012
