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 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 by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

231. Mercy and goodness, O my God

Mercy and goodness, O my God!
Have follow'd me through all my days;
Thy strengthening staff, and guiding rod,
Upheld my steps, made straight my ways:
Lord, till I reach thy holy hill,
Goodness and mercy guard me still.

And when I yield this mortal breath,
My soul into Thy hands commend,
And pass the vale and shade of death,
Thy staff and rod my path attend:
Mercy and goodness then shall be
My song to all eternity.
