Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

144. Lord, you have been our dwelling-place

1 Lord, you have been our dwelling-place
in every generation;
your people have received your grace,
and blessed your consolation;
through every age you heard our cry;
through every age we found you nigh,
our strength and our salvation.

2 Persisting sins we long have wept,
your patience long have tested;
but steadfast faith in you we kept,
still to your name devoted:
for you have kept and loved us well,
and granted us in you to dwell,
from your love never parted.

3 Lord, nothing from your arms so sure
shall your own people sever;
our helper ever will endure,
God's love will fail us never.
Your people, Lord, have dwelt in you;
and you remain our dwelling true
for ever and for ever.
