Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Since I have placed my trust in God

Since I have placed my trust in God

Published in 10 hymnals

Full Text

1 Since I have plac'd my trust in God,
A refuge always nigh,
Why should I, like a tim'rous bird,
to distant mountains fly?

2 Behold, the wicked bend their bow,
And ready fix their dart,
Lurking in ambush to destroy
The man of upright heart.

3 When once the firm assurance fails
Which public faith imparts,
'Tis time for innocence to fly
From such deceitful arts.

4 The Lord hath both a temple here
And righteous throne above
Whence he surveys the sons of men
And how their councils move.

5 If God, the righteous, whom he loves,
For trial does correct;
What must the sons of violence,
Whom he abhors, expect?

6 Snares, fire, and brimstone, on their heads,
Shall in one tempest show'r;
This dreadful mixture his revenge
Into their cup shall pour.

7 The righteous Lord will righteous deeds
With signal favor grace;
And to the upright man disclose
The brightness of his face.
