We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O God, from my distress, Make haste to set me free

O God, from my distress, Make haste to set me free

Representative Text

1 O GOD, from my distress,
make haste to set me free:
O LORD, with speed do Thou afford
thy saving help to me.
2 Let them who seek my soul,
be made to blush with shame;
And with confusion turned back
who make my hurt their aim.

3 They shall be turned back,
with shame confounded be;
As just recompence to them
for their insulting me.
4 Let all who seek thy face
be glad and joy in Thee;
Who thy salvation love, say still,
"GOD magnified be."

5 But I'm distressed, O GOD:
make haste to me, I pray;
For Thou my help and saviour art,
O LORD, make no delay.
