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.
Harry Plantinga

PXXIII. A Psalm of David

1 The Lord to me a shepherd is,
Want therefore shall not I,
2 He in the folds of tender grass
Doth make me down to lie;
He leads me to the waters till.
3 Restore my soul doth he;
In paths of righteousness he will
For his name sake lead me.

4 In valley of death's shade although
I walk, I'll fear none ill:
For thou with me, thy rod also
Thy staff me comfort will.
5 Thou hast 'fore me a table spread
In presence of my foes:
Thou dost anoint with oyl mine head,
My cup it overflows.

6 Goodness and mercy my days all
Shall surely follow me:
And in the Lord's house dwell I shall
So long as days shall be.
