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

PI. O blessed man that walks not in

1 O blessed man that walks not in
Th' advice of wicked men,
Nor standeth in the sinner way,
Nor scorners seats sits in.
2 But he upon Jehovah's law
Doth set his whole delight,
And in his law doth meditate
Both in the day and night.

3 He shall be like a planted tree
by water-brooks which shall
In his due season yield his fruit,
Whose leaf shall never fall.
And all he doth shall prosper well.
4 The wicked are not so:
But they are like unto the chaff
Which wind drives to and fro.

5 Therefore shall not ungodly men
In judgement stand upright,
Nor in th' assembly of the just
Shall stand the sinful wight.
6 For of the righteous men the Lord
Acknowledgeth the way;
Whereas the way of wicked men
Shall utterly decay.
6 For of the righteous men the Lord
