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.

PLIV. A Psalm of David, when the Ziphims came, and said to Saul, "Doth not David hide himself with us?'

1 O save me by thy name, O GOD,
and judge me by thy pow'r:
2 O GOD, now to my pray'r give ear,
and hear in this sad hour.
3 For strangers whom I never wrong'd,
yet up against me rise:
My soul, oppressors seek, who GOD
set not before their eyes. (Selah.)

4 Lo GOD my help; the Lord with those
who do my soul sustain:
5 My foes he'll justly recompence,
Them in thy truth restrain.
6 Then I to Thee shall sacrifice
With grateful willingness:
Yea LORD, because 'tis good, I will
with praise thy name confess.

7 For thou hast me delivered
from all adversities;
And may mine eyes see my desire
upon mine enemies.
