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, 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.

Full Text

David the king was grieved and moved,
He went to his chamber, his chamber, and wept;
And as he went he wept and said,
O my son! O my son!
Would to God I had died,
(Repeat previous line twice)
For thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!
