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.

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

Full Text

1 O Lord, my earnest cry
Thy listening ear has heard;
With thy salvation answer me,
And I will keep Thy word.

2 At early dawn I prayed,
Thy promises my trust;
At night I though upon thy word,
Most holy and most just.

3 O hear me in Thy grace,
In mercy quicken me;
The wicked plan to do me harm,
But they are far from Thee.

4 Thou, Lord, art near to me,
And true are Thy commands;
Of old Thy testimonies show
Thy truth eternal stands.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
