We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Dominus regit me

The Lord is only my support

Author: William Whittingham
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The Lord is only my support,
and he that doth me feed;
How can I then lack any thing,
whereof I stand in need?

2 In pastures green he feedeth me,
where I do safely lie,
And after leads me to the streams
which run most pleasantly.

3 And when I find myself near lost,
then doth he me home take,
Conducting me in his right paths,
ev'n for his own name's sake.

4 And tho' I were ev'n at death's door,
yet would I fear no ill;
For both thy rod and shepherd's crook
afford me comfort still.

5 Thou hast my table richly spread
in presence of my foe,
Thou hast my head with balm refresh'd,
my cup doth overflow;

6 And finally, whilst breath doth last,
thy grace shall me defend;
And in the house of God will I
my life for ever spend.
