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 O God, be merciful to me,
For men no mercy show;
With constant warfare pressing me
They seek my overthrow.

2 When foes invade, I safely rest,
Confiding in thy word;
I will not dread what man can do,
My trust is in the Lord.

3 I take Thy vows upon me now,
O God, Who savest me;
the sacrifice of praise I bring
In gratitude to Thee.

4 My feet from falling and my soul
From death Thy hast restored,
And ever in the light of life
I walk before the Lord.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
