Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you 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.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Arise, O Lord, with healing rod,
Lift up Thine hand and save, O God;
Arise to help the meek: for why
Should impious tongues Thy name defy?

2 Aloud they boast, Our acts are free;
God hides His face, God will not see;
But Thou hast seen: Thy piercing ray
Through sin’s dark windings flashes day.

3 Recorded by Thy righteous hand
The sinner’s deeds for judgment stand:
To Thee the poor commits his cause,
His help from Thee the friendless draws.

4 Quell Thou the scornful arm, and beat
The proud oppressor from his seat:
Proclaim—The reign of sin is o’er,
The place that knew it knows no more.

5 O Lord the King of boundless might,
The wicked perish from Thy sight:
’Tis Thine the drooping heart to cheer,
The cries of praying saints to hear,

6 The orphan’s injured cause to try,
And, in Thy people’s peril nigh,
To snatch them from the spoiler’s rage,
And guard their rightful heritage.
