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 man that fears the Lord
God's way shall understand;
His soul shall ever dwell at ease,
His children rule the land.

2 The friendship of the Lord
Is ever with His own,
And unto those that fear His Name
His faithfulness is shown.

3 My eyes are evermore
Toward Thee, O Lord, Whose care
Shall surely save my heedless feet
From every hidden snare.

4 O turn to me Thy face,
To me Thy mercy show,
For I am very desolate
And brought exceeding low.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
