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 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.

1 O Lord, make haste to hear my cry,
To Thee I call, on Thee rely.
Incline to me a gracious ear,
And when I call, in mercy hear.

2 When in the morning unto Thee
I lift my voice and bring my plea,
Then let my prayer as incense rise
To God enthroned above the skies.

3 When unto Thee I look and pray
With lifted hands at close of day,
Then as the evening sacrifice
Let my request accepted rise.

4 Guard Thou my thoughts, I Thee implore,
And of my lips O keep Thou the door;
Nor leave my sinful heart to stray
Where evil footsteps lead the way.

5 O righteous God, Thy chastisement,
Though sent through foes, in love is sent;
thought grievous it will profit me,
A healing ointment it shall be.

6 While wickedness my foes devise,
To Thee my constant prayer shall rise;
When their injustice is o'erthrown
Mu gentleness shall still be shown.

7 Brought nigh to death and sore distressed,
O Lord, my God, in Thee I rest;
Forsake me not, I look to Thee,
Let me Thy great salvation see.

8 Themselves entangled in their snare,
Their own defeat my foes prepare;
O keep me, Lord, for let me fall,
Protect and lead me safe through all.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
