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.

Representative Text

1 Fools in their heart have said,
There is no God of might;
Corrupt are they and base their deeds,
In evil they delight.

2 God looked from heav'n above
On all the human race,
To see if any understood,
If any sought His face.

3 They all are gone aside,
Corruption doth abound;
There is not one that doeth good,
Not even one is found.

4 These men of evil deeds,
Will they no knowledge gain,
Who feed upon my people's woes,
And prayer to God disdain?

5 The day is drawing nigh
When they shall fear and quail,
For God shall scatter and destroy
Those who His saints assail.

6 Yea, God will put to shame
And make them flee away,
For He will cast them off in wrath
And fill them with dismay.

7 O would that Israel's help
Were out of Zion come!
O would that God might early bring
His captive people home!

8 When God from distant lands
His exiled ones shall bring,
His people shall exultant be,
And gladly they shall sing.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
