Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

PXIV. A Psalm of David

1 Fools in their hearts say, there's no GOD,
and so corrupt they grow,
Abominable sins commit,
and nothing good they do.
2 From heav'n JEHOVAH looked down
on sons of men, to see
If any who do understand,
or seek to GOD there be.

3 They altogether filthy are;
they all are backward gone;
There are not any that do good,
no verily, not one.
4 The workers of iniquity,
do they not know at all?
That they my people eat as bread,
nor on the LORD will call.

5 Yet they shall with a grievous fear
appalled greatly be,
When GOD among the righteous race
they once shall come to see.
6 The counsel of the poor oppress'd,
ye mock'd and try'd to shame;
Because the LORD their refuge is,
and they hope in his name.

7 Who will from Zion Isr'el save?
when back the LORD shall bring
His captives; Jacob will rejoice,
and Isr'el gladly sing.
