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

Full Text

1 The Lord forever sits as king;
For judgment sets His throne;
In righteousness to judge the world,
And justice give each one.

2 So shall the Lord a refuge be
For those that are oppressed;
A refuge will He be for them,
What time they are distressed.

3 And they that know Thy name in Thee
Their confidence will place:
For Thou hast not forsaken them
That truly seek Thy face.

4 O sing ye praises to the Lord
That dwells in Zion hill;
Among the peoples everywhere
His deeds declare ye still.
