We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Give ear, O God, unto my cry

Give ear, O God, unto my cry

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Give ear O God unto my cry,
Unto my pray'r attend,
2 When my heart is opprest, to thee
Cry will I from earth's end.
Lead thou me up into the rock,
That higher is than I.
3 For thou my shelter and strong fort
Hast been from th' enemy.

4 Within thy tabernacle I
Forever will abide;
Within the covert of thy wings
I'll seek my self to hide. Selah.
5 For thou, O God, hast heard the vows
That I to thee have past:
The heritage to them that fear,
Thy name thou given hast.

6 Unto the king his days, there shall
Be added days by thee
His years as generation
And generation be.
7 In presence of the mighty God
He shall abide for aye:
Benignity and truth prepare,
That him preserve they may.

8 So then will I for evermore
Unto thy name sing praise;
That I the vows that I have made
Perform may all my days.
