Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

P144. Psalm 119, Part 18: O Lord, thou art most righteous

137 O Lord, thou art most righteous;
thy judgments are upright.
138 Thy testimonies thou command’st
most faithful are and right.

139 My zeal hath ev’n consumed me,
because mine enemies
Thy holy words forgotten have,
and do thy laws despise.

140 Thy word’s most pure, therefore on it
thy servant’s love is set.
141 Small, and despis’d I am, yet I
thy precepts not forget.

142 Thy righteousness is righteousness
which ever doth endure:
Thy holy law, Lord, also is
the very truth most pure.

143 Trouble and anguish have me found,
and taken hold on me:
Yet in my trouble my delight
thy just commandments be.

144 Eternal righteousness is in
thy testimonies all:
Lord, to me understanding give,
and ever live I shall.
