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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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

Representative Text

1 O LORD, I am not proud of Heart,
Nor do I cast a scornful Eye;
And my aspiring Thoughts. I ne'er
Employ in Things for me to high.

2 With infant Innocence, thou know'st
I always have my self demean'd;
Compos'd to Quiet, like a Babe,
That from it's Mother's Breast is wean'd.

3 Like me, let Israel hope in GOD,
Let them his Aid alone implore;
Both now and ever trust in him,
Who lives and reigns for evermore.
