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.

9541. How Long Will Ye Despise My Name?

1 "How long will ye despise My name?"
’Tis thus the God of mercy pleads;
:And turn My glory into shame,
And triumph in your evil deeds?"

2 "Search out your heart, and mend your ways,
That you may dwell with Me above;
Obedient faith, and thankful praise,
Such is the sacrifice I love."

3 O Lord, while others in despair
Cry, "Where is comfort to be found?"
I know that Thou wilt hear my prayer,
And let my soul with peace be crowned.

4 Thy blessings are of lasting worth,
Through endless years Thy goodness flows;
Vain are the riches of the earth
Compared with what Thy hand bestows.

5 I will lie down, and calmly sleep,
For on Thy succor I depend;
My soul in safety Thou wilt keep,
And be my never failing friend.
