Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I will lift the cloud of night before you,
though with wrong I'll make it right before you,
all your battles I will fight before you,
and the high place I'll bring down.

Refrain:
When you walk and lose the way I'll lead you;
on the produce of the land I'll feed you;
And a home within my heart I'll deed you;
and the high place I'll bring down.

2 With an everlasting love I'll love you,
though with wrong I'll make it right before you,
still there's nothing that can hurt or move you;
and the high place I'll bring down. [Refrain]

3 Although Satan in a rage would tear you,
and with every winning art would snare you,
yet from youth to your old age I'll bear you
and the high place I'll bring down. [Refrain]

4 I will lift the cloud of night before you,
I will make the crooked straight before you,
I will spread my wings protecting o'er you;
and the high place I'll bring down. [Refrain]
