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, 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
