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, 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

O Lord, I am not proud of heart, Nor cast a scornful eye

O Lord, I am not proud of heart, Nor cast a scornful eye

Full Text

O Lord, I am not proud of Heart,
nor cast a scornful Eye;
Nor my aspiring Thoughts employ
in Things for me to high.
2 With infant Innocence, thou know'st
I have my self demean'd;
Compos'd to quiet, like a Babe
that from the Breast is wean'd.

3 Like me let Isr'el hope in God,
his Aid alone implore;
Both now and ever trust in Him,
who lives for evermore.
