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.
Harry Plantinga

O thou who in the heavens dost dwell

O thou who in the heavens dost dwell

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Thou who in the heavn's dost dwell,
I lift mine eyes to Thee.
2 Behold, as servants eyes intent
their masters hand to see;
As maids eyes to their mistress hand;
to Thee our eyes are so;
To Thee the LORD our God, till Thou
wilt mercy on us show.

3 O LORD, be merciful to us,
to us, O gracious be!
For filled with contempt and scorn
exceedingly are we.
4 Our souls are fill'd exceedingly
with scoffs of men at ease;
And with the scorns of proud men who
from scoffing never cease.
