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

Dominus regit me

The Lord is only my support

Author: William Whittingham
Published in 4 hymnals

Full 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,
e'en for his own Name's sake.

4 And though I were e'en 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 refreshed,
my cup doth overflow;

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