Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

PIV. To the chief Musician on Neginoth. A Psalm of David

1 God of my justice, when I call,
O hear me when distress'd,
Thou hast enlarg'd me; shew me grace
And hear thou my request.
2 Ye sons of men my glory turn
To shame, how long will you?
How long will ye love vanity,
And still deceit pursue? Selah.

3 But know the Lord hath set apart
For him the gracious saint:
The Lord will hear when unto him
I pour out my complaint.
4 Be stirred up, but do not sin,
Consider seriously
Within your heart with silence deep
When on your bed you lie.

5 The sacrifice of righteousness
Let sacrificed be,
And confidently put your trust
Upon the Lord do ye.
6 Many there be that say, O who
Will cause us good to see?
The light, Lord, Of thy countenance,
Let on us lifted be.

7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart
More than the time wherein
Their corn and their new wine also
Have much increased been.
8 In peace with him I will lie down,
And I my sleep will take:
For me in confidence to dwell,
Thou Lord alone dost make.
