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.

33C. The LORD God from His Throne on High

1 The LORD God from his throne on high
looks down with clear and searching eye
on all that dwell below;
and he that fashioned heart and mind
looks ever down on human-kind,
their hearts and minds to know.
Not human strength or mighty hosts,
not charging steeds or warlike boasts
can save from overthrow;
but God will save from death and shame
all those who fear and trust his name,
and they no want shall know.

2 God's eye is on all those who fear;
to those who hope, the LORD is near,
according to his Word.
Death cannot touch those in his hand,
nor famine conquer in the land;
we wait upon the LORD.
In God our hope is firm and sure,
who makes the joyful heart secure,
our helper strong and true.
Our trust is in your holy name;
your mercy, LORD, in faith we claim,
as we have hoped in you.
