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.

How many, Lord, of late are grown

How many, Lord, of late are grown

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 How many, Lord, of late are grown
the Troublers of my Peace!
And as their Numbers hourly rise,
so does their Rage increase.
2 Insulting, they my Soul upbraid,
and him whom I adore:
The God in whom he trusts, say they,
shall rescue him no more.

3 But thou, O Lord, art my Defence;
on thee my Hopes rely:
Thou art my Glory, and shalt yet,
lift up my Head on high.
4 Since whensoe'er in like Distres,
to God I made my Prayer,
He heard me from his holy Hill;
Why should I now despair?

5 Guarded by him, I laid me down,
my sweet Repose to take;
For I through him securely sleep,
through him in Safety wake.
6 No Force nor Fury of my Foes,
my Courage shall confound;
Were there as many Hosts as Men,
that have beset me round.

7 Arise, and save me, O my God,
who oft hast own'd my Cause;
And scatter'd oft these Foes to me,
and to thy righteous Laws.
8 Salvation to the Lord belongs;
He only can defend;
His Blessing he extends to all,
that on his Pow'r depend.
