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

Voce mea

Before the Lord God with my voice

Author: Thomas Norton
Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

1 Unto the Lord God with my voice
I did send out my cry,
And with my strainèd voice unto
the Lord God prayèd I.

2 My meditation in his sight
to pour I did not spare,
And in the presence of the Lord
my trouble did declare.

3 Although perplexèd was my soul,
my path was known to thee:
In way where I did walk, a snare
they slyly laid for me.

4 I looked and viewed on my right hand,
but none there would me know:
All refuge failèd me, and for
my soul none care did show.

5 Then crièd I to thee, and said,
O Lord, my hope thou art,
And in the land of the living
my portion and my part.

6 Hear now my cry, for I am brought
full low, deliver me
From them that do me persecute,
for me too strong they be.

7 That I may praise thy Name, my soul
from prison, Lord, bring out:
When thou art good to me, the just
shall compass me about.
