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.

CXI. Psalm CXI

1 With heart I do accord
to praise and laud the Lord,
In presence of the just;
For great his works are found,
To search them such are bound,
as do him love and trust,

2 His works are glorious,
and righteousness to us,
It ever doth endure:
His wondrous works he would
We still remember should;
his mercy is full sure.

3 Such as to him bear love,
a portion fair below
He hath up for them laid:
For this they shall well find,
He will them have in mind,
and keep them as he said.

4 For he did not disdain
his works to show them plain,
By lightnings and by thunders:
When he the heathens' land
Did give into their hand,
where they beheld his wonders.

5 Of all his works ensu'th
both judgment, right, and truth,
Whereto his statutes tend:
They are decreèd sure
For ever to endure,
on which we may depend.

6 Redemption great he gave
his people for to save,
It also hath appeared;
His promise doth hot fail,
But evermore prevail:
his holy Name be feared.

7 Whoso with heart full fain
true wisdom would attain,
The Lord fear and obey
Such as his laws do keep,
Shall knowledge have full deep;
his praise shall last alway.
