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.

61b. Prayer and Praise for eminent Deliverance

1 I'll bless the Lord from Day to Day;
How good are all his Ways!
Ye humble Souls that use to pray,
Come, help my Lips to praise.

2 Sing to the Honour of his Name,
How a poor Suff'rer cry'd,
Nor was his Hope expos'd to Shame,
Nor was his Suit deny'd.

3 When threat'ning Sorrows round me stood,
And endless Fears arose,
Like the loud Billows of a Flood,
Redoubling all my Woes;

4 I told the Lord my sore Distress,
With heavy Groans and Tears;
He gave my sharpest Torments ease,
And silenc'd all my Fears.


5 [O Sinners, come and taste his Love,
Come, learn his pleasant Ways,
And let your own Experience prove
The Sweetness of his Grace.

6 He bids his Angels pitch their Tents
Round where his Children dwell;
What Ills their heav'nly Care prevents
No earthly Tongue can tell.]

[7 O love the Lord, ye Saints of his;
His Eye regards the Just;
How richly blest their Portion is
Who make the Lord their Trust!

8 Young Lions, pinch'd with Hunger roar
And famish in the Wood;
But GOD supplies his holy Poor
With ev'ry needful Good.]
