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.

PLXI. To the chief Musician upon Neginoth. A Psalm of David

1 Give ear O God unto my cry,
Unto my pray'r attend,
2 When my heart is opprest, to thee
Cry will I from earth's end.
Lead thou me up into the rock,
That higher is than I.
3 For thou my shelter and strong fort
Hast been from th' enemy.

4 Within thy tabernacle I
Forever will abide;
Within the covert of thy wings
I'll seek my self to hide. Selah.
5 For thou, O God, hast heard the vows
That I to thee have past:
The heritage to them that fear,
Thy name thou given hast.

6 Unto the king his days, there shall
Be added days by thee
His years as generation
And generation be.
7 In presence of the mighty God
He shall abide for aye:
Benignity and truth prepare,
That him preserve they may.

8 So then will I for evermore
Unto thy name sing praise;
That I the vows that I have made
Perform may all my days.
