Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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, that art my righteous Judge,
to my Complaint give Ear.
Thou still redeem'st me from Distress:
Have Mercy, Lord, and hear.
2 How long will ye, O Sons of Men,
to blot my Fame devise?
How long your vain Designs pursue,
and spread malicious Lies?

3 Consider that the righteous Man
is God's peculiar Choice;
And when to him I make my Pray'r,
he always hears my Voice.
4 Then stand in Awe of his Commands,
flee ev'ry Thing that's ill;
Commune in private with your Hearts,
and bind them to his Will.

5 The Place of other Sacrifice
let Righteousness supply;
And let your Hope, securely fix'd,
on God alone rely.
6 While worldly Minds impatient grow,
more prosp'rous Times to see;
Still let the Glories of thy Face
shine brightly, Lord, on me.

7 So shall my Heart o'er flow with Joy,
more lasting, and more true,
Than theirs, who Stores of Corn and Wine
successively renew.
8 Then down in Peace I'll lay my Head,
and take my needful Rest:
No other Guard, O Lord, I crave,
of thy Defence possest.
