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.

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

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Be Thou my judge, O righteous Lord,
Try Thou my inmost heart;
I walk with steadfast trust in Thee,
Nor from Thy ways depart.

2 O search me, Lord, and prove me now;
thy mercy I adore;
I choose Thy truth to be my guide,
And sinful ways abhor.

3 My hands I wash in innocence
And seek thy altar, Lord,
That there I may with thankful voice
Thy wondrous works record.

4 The habitations of Thy house
Is ever my delight;
The place where dwells Thy glory, Lord,
Is lovely in my sight.

5 Let not the judgment fall on me
For evil men decreed,
For cruel men and violent,
Inspired by bribes and greed.

6 But I in my integrity
Will humbly walk with Thee;
O my Redeemer and my Lord,
Be merciful to me.

7 Redeemed by Thee, I stand secure
In peace and happiness;
And in the Church, among Thy saints,
Jehovah I will bless.
