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.

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

O Lord, my heart's not haughty grown

O Lord, my heart's not haughty grown

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. O Lord, my heart's not haughty grown,
Nor lofty are my eyes;
In things too great, and high, for me.
Is not mine exercise.
2. Surely, I have composed my mind,
And carried it as mild.
As children weaned from the breast;
My soul's a weaned child.

3. Let Israel learn, in God alone,
The God whom they adore,
To place their steadfast hope, and trust,
Both now, and evermore.
