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.
Harry Plantinga

Psalm 143

Representative Text

1 Oh, hear my prayer, Lord,
unto me answer make,
and, in thy righteousness,
upon me pity take.

2 To thee I stretch my hands
to thee, my help alone;
for thou well understands
all my complaint and moan:

3 My thirsting soul desires,
and longeth after thee,
as thirsty ground requires
with rains refreshed to be.

4 Because I trust in thee,
O Lord, cause me to hear
thy loving-kindness free,
when morning doth appear:

5 Cause me to know the way
wherein my path should be;
for why, my soul on high
I do lift up to thee.
