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.

PXX. To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David

1 I' th' day of sore affliction,
The Lord to thee attend,
The name of Jacob's mighty God
Thee mightily defend,
2 Send thee help from his holy place;
From Sion strengthen thee.
3 Mind all thy gifts and sacrifice,
Accepted let it be.

4 Grant thee according to thy heart,
Thy counsel all fulfil.
5 We in thy perfect saving health
Rejoyce with shouting will.
And in the name of our God we
Our banners will erect.
When as thy supplications all
Jehovah shall effect.

6 Now know I that Jehovah doth
Save his anointed dear:
With saving strength of his right hand,
From's holy heav'n he'll hear.
7 In chariots some their confidence,
And some in horses set:
But of the Lord our God the name
We never will forget.

8 So we arise and stand upright,
They are brought down and fall.
9 Save Lord, and let the King us hear,
When unto him we call.
