Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

119N. Thou Art My Portion, Lord

1 Thou art my portion, Lord;
thy words I ever heed;
with all my heart thy grace I seek,
thy promises I plead.

2 I thought upon my ways,
thy testimonies learned;
with earnest haste, and waiting not,
to thy commands I turned.

3 While snares beset my path,
thy law I keep in view;
at midnight I will give thee praise
for all thy judgments true.

4 All those who fear thy name
shall my companions be;
thy mercy fills the earth, O Lord;
thy statutes teach thou me.
