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

I'm Not Your Judge

Full Text

1 I'm not your judge, Nay! God forbids
Me judge the record of your deeds;
But tells me wait, with ready hand,
To love and help and understand;
But tells me wait, with ready hand,
To love, and help, and understand.

Response:
Judge not, that ye be not judged;
Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 I'm not your judge, Nay! I'm unfit,
God plainly tells in holy writ;
He bids me raise and lift you up,
Then pass to you the loving-cup;
He bids me raise and lift you up,
Then pass to you the loving-cup. [Response]

3 I'm not your judge, Nay! One on high
Will read your sentence by and by;
But while we journey side by side,
I am your friend whate'er betide;
But while we journey side by side,
I am your friend whate'er betide. [Response]

4 I'm not your judge, Nay! One upon
His throne will judge in love, His own;
So, over all your faults I cast
Love's sacred mantle to the last;
So, over all your faults I cast
Love's sacred mantle to the last. [Response]
