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.

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.

Consider that the righteous man

Consider that the righteous man

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Consider that the righteous man
Is God's peculiar choice:
And when to him I make my pray'r,
He always hears my voice.

2 Then stand in awe of his commands;
Flee ev'ry thing that's ill;
Commune in private with your hearts,
And bind them to his will.

3 The place of other sacrifice
Let righteousness supply;
And let your hope, securely fix'd,
On God alone rely.

4 While worldly minds impatient grow,
More prosp'rous times to see;
Still let the glories of thy face
shine brightly, Lord, on me.

5 So shall my heart o'er flow with joy
More lasting and more true,
Than theirs, who stores of corn and wine
Successively renew.

6 Then down in peace I'll lay my head,
And take my needful rest:
No other guard, O Lord, I crave,
Of thy defence posses'd.
