As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this
drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!
Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North
American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us
do that. 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 How greatly bless'd the man, whose ear
The sinner's council shuns to hear;
And where the sons of folly stray,
Declines his studious steps the way.
2 Nor frantic mirth he deigns to share,
Nor sits he in the scorner's chair;
His heart, possess'd with sacred awe,
Daily revolves God's holy law.
3 Like a fair tree, that, taught to grow
Where living streams of water flow,
His fruitful branch he rears on high,
Nor fears a sickening autumn nigh.
4 What'er his ready thoughts devise,
He, joyful, to the work applies;
Still sure to find the wish'd success
Repay his hope, his labour bless.Source: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #CXXVIII
