Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

To the chief Musician on Neginoth. A Psalm of David

God of my justice, when I call

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 God of my justice, when I call,
O hear me when distressed,
Thou hast enlarged me; show me grace
And hear thou my request.
2 Ye sons of men my glory turn
To shame, how long will you?
How long will ye love vanity,
And still deceit pursue? Selah.

3 But know the Lord hath set apart
For him the gracious saint:
The Lord will hear when unto him
I pour out my complaint.
4 Be stirred up, but do not sin,
Consider seriously
Within your heart with silence deep
When on your bed you lie.

5 The sacrifice of righteousness
Let sacrificed be,
And confidently put your trust
Upon the Lord do ye.
6 Many there be that say, O who
Will cause us good to see?
The light, Lord, Of thy countenance,
Let on us lifted be.

7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart
More than the time wherein
Their corn and their new wine also
Have much increased been.
8 In peace with him I will lie down,
And I my sleep will take:
For me in confidence to dwell,
Thou Lord alone dost make.

The Psalm, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New-Testament,1742
