Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

LXX. Where are the Mourners (saith the Lord)

1 "Where are the Mourners (saith the Lord)
"That wait and tremble at my Word,
"That walk in Darkness all the Day?
"Come, make my Name your Trust and Stay.
2 "No Works nor Duties of your own
"Can for the smallest Sin atone
"The Robes that Nature may provide
"Will not your least Pollutions hide.

3 "The softest Couch that Nature knows
"Can give the Conscience no Repose;
"Look to my Righteousness, and live;
"Comfort and Peace are mine to give.
4 "Ye Sons of Pride, that kindle Coals
"With your own Hands to warm your Souls,
"Walk in the Light of your own Fire,
"Enjoy the Sparks that ye desire.

5 "This is your Portion at my Hands;
"Hell waits you with her Iron Bands;
"Ye shall lye down in Sorrow there,
"In Death, in Darkness, and despair.
