During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

I mercy will and judgment sing

I mercy will and judgment sing, O Lord God, unto thee

Author: Thomas Norton
Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I Mercy will and judgment sing,
O Lord God, unto thee,
O let me understand the ways
that good and holy be.

2 Within my house I daily will
walk with an heart upright,
And I no kind of wicked thing
will set before my sight.

3 I hate their works, that fall away,
they shall not cleave to me,
From me shall go the froward heart,
no evil will I see.

4 Him I'll destroy that slandereth
his neighbour privily;
The lofty heart I will not bear,
nor him that looketh high.

5 My eyes shall be on them within
the land, that faithful be;
In perfect way who walketh, shall
be servant unto me:

6 I will no guileful person have
within my house to dwell,
And in my presence he shall not
remain that lies doth tell.

7 Betimes I will destroy ev'n all
the wicked of the land,
That I may from God's city cut
the wicked worker's hand.
