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

Notes: Responsorial refrain to reading of Psalm 14. Tone included for chanting. The choice of refrain will reflect a particular appropriation of the psalm. The refrain provided here resists the inclination to hear the psalm as a reference to other people, owning up to the fact that all of us struggle with tendencies to deny God. The refrain of 14A is a cry for help and deliverance on behalf of oppressed people.
