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

Ps.247. Psalm 112

Happy is he that fears the Lord,
And follows his commands;
Who lends the poor without reward,
Or gives with lib'ral hands.

As pity dwells within his breast
To all the sons of need;
So God shall answer his request
With blessings on his seed.

No evil tidings shall surprise
His well-established mind;
His soul to God his refuge flies,
And leaves his fears behind.

In times of general distress
Some beams of light shall shine,
To show the world his righteousness,
And give him peace divine.

His works of piety and love
Remain before the Lord;
Honor on earth and joys above
Shall be his sure reward.
