During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

A Psalm of David

Of mercy and of judgement I Will tune my voice to sing

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Of mercy and of judgment I
will tune my voice to sing:
To Thee JEHOVAH both are due,
to Thee the praise I'll bring.
2 I shall the perfect way discern,
when Thou wilt come to me;
And I'll in uprightness of heart
walk in my house with Thee.

3 No wicked thing before mine eyes
will I endure to have:
I hate their work who turn aside;
to me it shall not cleave.
4 The stubborn and the froward heart
away from me shall go:
I'll make no friendship with the bad,
nor intimately know.

5 I'll cut him off whose lies defame,
his neighbour secretly:
I will not hear the proud of heart,
nor him whose looks are high.
6 I'll eye the faithful of the land,
that they may dwell with me:
And who walk in an upright way,
shall my attendants be.

7 But he who acts deceitfully,
in my house shall not dwell;
Nor shall he stay before my eyes,
who lies allows to tell.
8 Yea all the wicked of the land,
early suppress will I;
From the LORD's city cut off all
who will do wickedly
