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.
1 How long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
shall it for ever be?
How long wilt thou so sadly hide
thy face away from me?
2 How long within my soul consult,
and grieve in heart shall I?
How long exalted over me
shall be mine enemy?
3 O Lord my God, consider me
and answer to me make;
Mine eyes enlighten, lest the sleep
of death me overtake.
4 Lest my proud foes in boasting say,
against him I prevail;
Lest those that trouble me rejoice,
to see me wholly fail.
5 But as I set my confidence
upon thy bounteous grace;
My heart in thy salvation shall
rejoyce with thankful praise.
6 Yea to Jehovah songs of praise
I'll sing melodiously;
Who in his kindness deals with me
