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

I.XCIII. Thus saith the Wisdom of the Lord

1 Thus saith the Wisdom of the Lord,
"Bless'd is the Man that hears my Word,
"Keeps daily Watch before my Gates,
"And at my feet for Mercy waits.

2 "The Soul that seeks me shall obtain
"Immortal Wealth and heav'nly Gain;
"Immortal Life is his Reward,
"Life, and the Favour of the Lord.

3 "But the vile Wretch that flies from me,
"Doth his own Soul an Injury;
Fools that against my Grace rebel
Seek Death, and love the Road to Hell.
