Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

301. What mean these jealousies and fears

1 What mean these jealousies and fears,
As if the Lord were loth to save?
Or lov'd to see us steep'd in tears,
Or sink with sorrow to the grave.

2 Does he want slaves to grace his throne?
Or crush them with an iron rod?
Is he refresh'd to hear us groan?
Is he a tyrant, or a God?

3 Not all th' iniquities thou'st wrought,
So much his tender bowels grieve,
As this unkind injurious thought,--
That he's unwilling to forgive.
