Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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

Lord, bless and pity us

Representative Text

1 Lord, bless and pity us,
shine on us with your face:
that your way may be known on earth,
all nations know your grace.

2 Let people praise you, Lord;
let all the people praise.
Oh, let the nations all be glad,
in songs their voices raise:

3 You'll justly people judge,
on earth rule nations all.
Let people praise you, Lord; let them
praise you, both great and small.

4 The earth her fruit shall yield,
our God shall blessing send.
God shall us bless; all shall him fear
unto earth's utmost end.
