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.

PLX. To the chief Musician upon Shushan Eduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aram Naharam, and with Aram Zohab, when Joab returned and smote of Edom in the valley of Salt twelve thousand

1 O God thou hast rejected us
and scattered us abroad:
Thou hast displeased been with us,
Return to us, O God.
2 The land to tremble thou hast caus'd,
Thou it asunder brake:
Do thou the breaches of it heal,
For it doth moving shake.

3 Thou hast thy people caus'd to see
Things that are hard to bear:
And thou hast caused them to drink
The wine of trembling fear.
4 But thou bestowed hast on them,
A banner who thee fear;
That it on high before the truth
Displayed may appear, Selah.

5 That those that thy beloved are
May be deliver'd free:
O do thou save with thy right hand,
And answer give to me.
6 God in his holiness hath spoke,
Therein rejoyce I still;
Shechem divide, and mete the vale
Of Sucoth out I will.

7 To me doth Gilead appertain,
Manasseh mine besides;
Ephraim the strength is of my head,
Judah my law prescribes.
8 Moab my washpot is, I will
O'er Edom cast my shoe:
O Palestine, because of me,
Be thou triumphant too.

9 O who is it that will me bring
Into the city strong?
And into Edom who is he
That will lead me along?
10 Is it not thou, O God, who did
Us cast away thee fro;
And thou, O God, who wouldest not
Forth with our armies go?

11 From trouble give unto us help,
For help of man is vain;
Through God we'll do great acts, he shall
Our foes tread with disdain.
