We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

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.
