Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 I waited for the Lord my God,
Yea, patiently drew near,
And He at length inclined to me,
My pleading cry to hear.

2 He took me from destruction's pit,
From out the miry clay;
He wt my feet upon a rock,
and steadfast made my way.

3 A new and joyful song of praise
Mu thankful heart He taught,
A song of glory to our God
For all that He has wrought.

4 And many who behold how good
The Lord has been to me
Shall learn to fear, and in His Name
Their trust henceforth shall be.

5 O truly blessed is the man
That on the Lord relies,
Respecting not the proud, nor such
As turn aside to lies.

6 O Lord, my God, how manifold
The works which Thou hast wrought,
Ofttimes Thou hast bestowed on us
Thy care and gracious thought.

7 Thy works and thoughts most wonderful,
If I of them would speak,
Cannot be numbered, and in vain
To set them forth I seek.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
