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.

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.
