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.

PVIa. To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith. A Psalm of David

1 Lord, in thy wrath rebuke me not,
Nor in thy hot wrath chasten me,
2 Lord pity me, for I am weak;
Lord heal me, for my bones vex'd be.
3 Also my soul is vexed sore:
How long, Lord, wilt thou me forsake?
4 Return, O Lord, my soul release:
O save me for thy mercies sake.

5 In death no mem'ry is of thee,
And who shall praise thee in the grave?
6 I faint with groans: all night my bed
Swims: I with tears my couch wash'd have.
7 Mine eye with grief is dim and old,
Because of all mine enemies.
8 But now depart away from me,
All ye that work iniquities:
Because Jehovah now hath heard
The voice of these my weeping tears;
9 The Lord hat heard my humble suit,
Jehovah will receive my pray'rs.
10 Let all mine enemies be asham'd,
And greatly troubled let them be:
Yea, let them be returned back,
And be ashamed suddenly.
