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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

PXI. To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David

1 I in the Lord do put my trust,
How therefore do you say
Unto my soul, like as a bird
Fly to your hill away?
2 For lo the wicked bend their bow,
Their shafts on string prepare:
That they may shoot i' th' dark at them
In heart that upright are.

3 If that the firm foundations
Be wholly overthrown;
Yet for the man that righteous is,
What is it he hath done?
4 The Lord in's holy temple is,
The Lord's throne's in the sky:
His eyes will view, his eye-lids too
The sons of men will try.

5 The man that truly righteous is,
Ev'n him the Lord will prove:
His soul the wicked hates, and him
That violence doth love.
6 Snares, fire and brimstone he will rain
Ungodly men upon:
And burning tempest of their cup
Shall be the portion.

7 Because the Lord that righteous is,
All righteousness doth love:
His countenance the upright one
Beholding doth approve.
