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.
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
