We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 I Mercy will and judgment sing,
Lord, I will sing to thee.
2 I'll wisely do in perfect way
When thou shalt come to me;
I will in midst of my house walk
In my heart's uprightness
3 I will not set before mine eyes
The work of wickedness.

I hate their work who turn aside,
It shall not cleave me to.
4 The froward heart from me shall part,
None evil will I know
5 I'll cut him off that slandereth
His neighbour privily;
I cannot bear the proud in heart,
Nor him that looketh high.

6 Upon the faithful in the land
Mine eyes shall be that they
May dwell with me, he shall me serve
Who walks in perfect way.
7 He that a worker is of guile
In my house shall not dwell
Before me settled shall not be
The man who lyes doth tell.

8 Yea all the wicked of the land
Early destroy will I:
To cut off from God's city all
Who work iniquity.
