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,

CXII. Psalm CXII

1 The man is blest that God doth fear,
and that his law doth love indeed;
His seed on earth God will uprear,
and bless such as from him proceed!
His house with riches he will fill,
his righteousness endure shall still.

2 Unto the righteous doth arise
in trouble joy, in darkness light;
Compassion great is in his eyes,
and mercy always in his sight;
Yea, pity moveth him to lend,
he doth with judgment things expend,

3 And surely he shall never fail,
for in remembrance had is he;
Nor tidings ill his mind assail,
who in the Lord sure hope doth see;
His heart is firm, his fear is past,
for he shall see his foes down cast,

4 He did well for the poor provide,
his righteousness doth still remain;
And his estate with praise abide,
which wicked men behold with pain;
Yea, gnash their teeth thereat shall they,
and so consume and melt away.
