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.

My trust is in the Lord, How to my soul say ye

My trust is in the Lord, How to my soul say ye

Tune: AYLESBURY (Camp)
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My trust is in the Lord:
How say ye then to me,
"Now like a bird from peril haste,
And to your mountain flee?"

2 Lo, sinners bend the bow
With arrow fixed for flight;
And stealthily in darkness go
The true in heart to smite.

3 What can the righteous do,
What can for them avail,
When all foundations are destroyed,
And all the pillars fail?

4 The Lord in Zion dwells,
The Lord is throned on high;
His eyes behold the sons of men
Their hearts and ways to try.

5 The Lord the righteous proves;
But those who scorn the right,
Who love deceit and violence
Are hateful in his sight.

6 For righteous is the Lord,
He loveth righteousness,
And with a gracious countenance
The upright he will bless.

Amen.
