Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

O Lord, I call to you

O Lord, I call to you

Tune: [O Lord, I call to you]
Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

Let my prayer arise before you,
arise before you like incense.

1 O Lord, I call to you; come to me quickly;
hear my voice when I cry to you.

2 Let my prayer rise before you as incense],
the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. [Refrain]

3 Set a watch before my mouth, O Lord,
and guard the door of my lips.

4 Let not my heart incline to any evil thing;
let me not be occupied in wickedness with evildoers.

5 But my eyes are turned to you, Lord god;
in you I take refuge; strip me not of my life. [Refrain]
