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, 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,

1 Thee will I praise with my whole heart,
my Lord my God always;
E'en in the presence of the gods
I will advance thy praise.

2 Towards thy holy temple I
will look and worship thee;
And praisèd in my thankful mouth
thy holy Name shall be;

3 E'en for thy loving-kindness' sake,
and for thy truth withal:
For thou thy Name hast by thy word
Advancèd over all.

4 When I did call, thou heardest me,
and thou hast made also
The power of increasèd strength
within my soul to grow.

5 Yea, all the kings on earth shall give
praise unto thee, O Lord:
For they of thy most holy mouth
have heard the mighty word.

6 They of the ways of God the Lord
in singing shall repeat;
Because the glory of the Lord
is so exceeding great.

7 The Lord is high, but yet he doth
the lowly man respect;
The proud he knows far off, and them
with scorn he doth reject.

8 Although in midst of trouble I
do walk, yet shall I stand
Revived by thee; for thou, O Lord,
wilt stretch out thy right hand.

9 Upon the wrath of all my foes,
and savèd shall I be
By thy right hand: the Lord God will
perform his work to me.

10 Thy mercies last for evermore,
Lord, do me not forsake;
Forsake me not, who am the work
which thy own hand did make.
