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.

Deus in nomine

God save me for thy holy Name

Author: John Hopkins
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 God, save me for thy holy Name,
and for thy goodness' sake:
Unto the strength, Lord, of the same,
I do my cause betake.

2 Regard, O Lord, and give an ear
to me when I do pray;
Bow down thyself to me, and hear
the words that I do say:

3 For strangers up against me rise,
and tyrants vex me still,
Who have not God before their eyes,
that seek my soul to spill.

4 But lo, my God doth give me aid,
the Lord is nigh at hand;
With them by whom my soul is stayed
the Lord doth ever stand.

5 With plagues repay again all those
for me that lie in wait,
And in thy truth destroy my foes
with their own snare and bait.

6 An off'ring of free heart and will
then I to thee shall make,
And praise thy Name, for therein still
great comfort I do take.

7 Thou, Lord, at length hast set me free
from them that craft conspire,
And now my eye with joy doth see
on them my heart's desire.
