Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

Text:Psalm V

V. Psalm V

1 Incline thine ears, O Lord, and let
my words have free access
To thee, who art my God and King,
from whom I seek redress.

2 Hear me betimes, Lord, tarry not,
for I will have respect,
My supplication in the morn
to thee for to direct.

3 And I will patiently still trust
in thee, my God, alone;
Thou art not pleased with wickedness,
and ill with thee dwells none.

4 Such as be foolish shall not stand
in sight of thee, O Lord;
Vain workers of iniquity
thou hast always abhorred.

5 The liars and base flatterers
shall be destroyed by thee;
Blood-thirsty and deceitful men
likewise shall hated be.

6 Therefore will I come to thy house,
trusting upon thy grace;
And rev'rently will worship thee
towards thy holy place.

7 Lord, lead me in thy righteousness,
for to confound my foes;
Also the way that I should walk
before my face disclose:

8 For in their mouths there is no truth,
their inward filth is great;
Their throat an open sepulcher,
and tongues full of deceit.

9 Destroy their false conspiracies,
that they may come to naught:
Subvert them in their heaps of sin,
who have rebellion wrought:

10 But those that put their trust in thee,
let them be glad always;
And render thanks for thy defense,
and give thy Name the praise

11 For thou with favor wilt increase
the just and righteous still;
And with thy grace, as with a shield,
defend him from all ill.
