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.
Harry Plantinga

PXLIII. Judge me, O God, and plead my cause

1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause
From nation merciless;
Both from the man of guile and wrong,
O send thou me redress.
2 for of my strength thou art the God,
Why cast thou me thee fro?
Who go I mourning for the sore
Oppression of the foe?

3 O send thou forth thy light and truth,
Let them lead and bring me
Unto thy holy hill, and where
Thy tabernacles be.
4 Then will I to God's altar go,
To God my cheerful joy:
Yea, thee to praise, O God my God,
I will my harp imploy.

5 My soul, O wherefore dost thou bow
Thy self down heavily,
And wherefore in me makest thou
A stir tumultuously?
6 Hope thou in God, because I shall
With praise him yet advance,
Who is my God, he also is
Health of my countenance.
