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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Deus misereatur

Have mercy on us Lord, And grant to us thy grace

Full Text

1 Have mercy on us, Lord;
and grant to us thy grace;
To show to us do thou accord
the brightness of thy face;

2 That all the earth may know
the way to godly wealth,
And all the nations here below
may see thy saving health.

3 Let all the world, O God,
give praise unto thy Name;
And let the people all abroad
extol and laud the same.

4 Throughout the world so wide
let all rejoice with mirth;
For thou with truth and right dost guide
the nations of the earth.

5 Let all the world, O God,
give praise unto thy Name;
And let the people all abroad
extol and laud the same.

6 Then shall the earth increase,
great store of fruit shall fall;
And then our God, the God of peace,
shall ever bless us all.

7 God shall us greatly bless,
and then both far and near
The folk which all the earth possess
of him shall stand in fear.
