Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 The Lord upholds the faltering feet
And makes the weak securely stand;
The burdened ones, bowed down with grief,
Are helped by His most gracious hand.
The eyes of all upon Thee wait;
By Thee their wants are all supplied;
Thy open hand is bountiful,
And every soul is satisfied.

2 The Lord is just in all His ways,
In all His works the Lord is kind,
And all that call on Him in truth
In Him a present helper find.
He will fulfill the heart's desire
Of those that fear Him and obey;
Their cry the Lord will surely hear,
And He wills ave them when they pray.

3 His great salvation they shall know
Who love the Lord's most holy Name;
The wicked He will overthrow
And put His enemies to shame.
My mouth shall speak the glorious praise
Of Him Whom heaven and earth adore;
Let all exalt His holy Name
Forever and for evermore.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
