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.

Representative Text

1 LORD save me, for thy glorious Name,
In thy resistless Strength appear
To judge my Cause, and to my Pray'r,
Vouchsafe to lend a gracious Ear:
Mere Strangers whom I never wrong'd,
Against my Safety have design'd,
And cruel Men that fear no GOD,
To take my Soul have close combin'd.

2 But GOD takes part with all my Friends,
And he's indeed the surest Guard;
The GOD of Truth shall on my Foes
Pour down their Falshood's just Reward.
Whilst I my grateful Off'rings bring,
And sacrifice with grateful Joy,
And in his Praise my Time to come.
With holy Extacy employ.

3 From dreadful Danger and Distress,
The LORD of Life hath set me free:
And through his Strength, of all my Foes,
The just Destruction I shall see.
