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.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us.
1 Blessed are you, Lord, the God of Israel:
you have come to your people and set them free.
2 You have raised up for us a mighty Savior,
born of the house of your servant David. [Refrain]
3 Through your holy prophets, you promised of old
to save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all who hate us,
4 to show mercy to our forebears
and to remember your holy covenant. [Refrain]
5 This was the oath you swore to our father Abraham:
to set us free from the hands of our enemies:
7 And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare the way,
8 to give God's people knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins. [Refrain]
9 In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
10 to shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace. [Refrain]Source: Psalms for All Seasons: a complete Psalter for worship #1014
