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.

PXV. A Psalm of David

1 O Lord, who's he within thy tent,
A sojourner shall be?
And who is he inhabit shall
Thy hill of sanctity?
2 The man that walketh uprightly
That worketh righteousness;
And he who from his heart doth speak
The words of faithfulness.

3 Who with the tongue backbiteth not,
Nor doth his neighbour hurt:
Now yet against his neighbour doth
Take up an ill report.
4 Whose eyes contemn the person vile:
But those the Lord that fear
He honours them, and changeth not,
Tho' to his hurt he swear.

5 Nor gives his coin to usury:
Nor take a bribe doth he
Against the harmless: thus who doth
Shall never moved be.
