Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1
O Lord, my God, you know all my ways,
when I sleep and I rise, when I sit or stand;
and before any word is upon my tongue
you discern it as though I had spoken it.
2
Where can I go to be far from you?
In the deepest of caves, in the heights of heaven?
If I rise up and fly on the wings of dawn,
still your right hand will guide me and hold me fast.
3
O Lord, my God, you created me,
in a wonderful way you have fashioned me.
Test my spirit and see what is in my heart;
lead me on in the way to eternal life.
