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

Psalm 125

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 138 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 125 First Line: Unshaken as the sacred hill Lyrics: Unshaken as the sacred hill, And firm as mountains be, Firm as a rock the soul shall rest That leans, O Lord, on thee. Not walls nor hills could guard so well Old Salem's happy ground, As those eternal arms of love That every saint surround. While tyrants are a smarting scourge To drive them near to God, Divine compassion does allay The fury of the rod. Deal gently, Lord, with souls sincere, And lead them safely on To the bright gates of Paradise, Where Christ their Lord is gone. But if we trace those crooked ways That the old serpent drew, The wrath that drove him first to hell Shall smite his followers too.

Zion Stands by Hills Surrounded

Author: Thomas Kelly Meter: D Appears in 360 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 125:2 Lyrics: 1 Zion stands by hills surrounded, Zion, kept by pow'r divine; all her foes shall be confounded, though the world in arms combine. Happy Zion, what a favored lot is thine! Happy Zion, what a favored lot is thine! 2 Ev'ry human tie may perish; friend to friend unfaithful prove; mothers cease their own to cherish; heav'n and earth at last remove; but no changes can attend Jehovah's love, but no changes can attend Jehovah's love. 3 In the furnace God may prove thee, thence to bring thee forth more bright, but can never cease to love thee; thou art precious in his sight. God is with thee - God, thine everlasting light, God is with thee - God, thine everlasting light.

Psalm 125

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 59 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 125 First Line: Firm and unmoved are they Lyrics: Firm and unmoved are they That rest their souls on God; Firm as the mount where David dwelt, Or where the ark abode. As mountains stood to guard The city's sacred ground, So God and his almighty love Embrace his saints around. What though the Father's rod Drop a chastising stroke, Yet, lest it wound their souls too deep, Its fury shall be broke. Deal gently, Lord, with those Whose faith and pious fear, Whose hope, and love, and every grace, Proclaim their hearts sincere. Nor shall the tyrant's rage Too long oppress the saint; The God of Isr'el will support His children lest they faint. But if our slavish fear Will choose the road to hell, We must expect our portion there, Where bolder sinners dwell.

Qui confidunt

Author: W. K. Appears in 5 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 125 First Line: Such as in God the Lord do trust Lyrics: 1 Such as in God the Lord do trust, As mount Sion shall firmly stand, And be removed at no hand/ The Lord will count them right and just: So that they shall be sure, For ever to endure. 2 As mighty mountaines huge and great Jerusalem about do close: So will the Lord do unto those, who on his godly will do wait: Such are to him so deare they never need to feare. 3 For though the righteous try doth he, by making wicked men his rod: Lest they through grief forsake their God it shall not always their lot be. 4 Give Lord to us thy light Whose hearts are true and right. 5 But as for such as turn aside, by crooked waies which they out-sought: The Lord will surely bring to nought: With workers vile they shall abide: But peace with Israel For evermore shall dwell.
