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.
1 O Lord, Thy perfect righteousness
Is in thy judgments shown';
In Thy unchanging faithfulness
thy truth thou hast made known.
2 Because Thy foes forget Thy law
My soul is greatly stirred;
Thy servant loves the purity
Of Thy most holy word.
3 Tho' I am humble and despised,
I strive Thy will to do;
Eternal is Thy righteousness,
And all Thy law is true.
4 Delight amid distress and pain
do Thy commandments give;
Thy word is righteous evermore,
Teach me that I may live.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
