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 Lord, who's the happy man, that may
To thy blest courts repair;
And, while he bows before thy throne,
Shall find acceptance there?

2 'Tis he, whose ev'ry thought, and deed
By rules of virtue moves;
Whose gen'rous tongue disdains to speak
The thing his heart disproves:

3 Who never did a slander forge,
His neighbour's fame to wound;
Nor hearken to a false report,
By malice whisper'd round.

4 Who vice, in all its pomp and pow'r,
Can treat with just neglect;
And piety, though cloth'd in rags,
Religiously respect:

5 Who to his plighted vows and trust
Has ever firmly stood;
And, though he promise to his loss,
He makes his promise good:

6 Who seeks not by oppressive ways
His Treasure to employ;
Whom no rewards can ever bribe,
The guiltless to destroy.

7 The man, who, by this steady course,
Has happiness ensur'd,
When earth's foundation shakes, shall stand,
By Providence secur'd.
