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 righteous cry unto the Lord,
He unto them gives ear;
And they out of their troubles all
By Him delivered are.

The angle of the Lord encampeth round
About them that fear Him,
The angel of the Lord encampeth round about
Encampeth round about them that rear Him.

2 The Lord is ever nigh to them
That are of broken heart;
To those of contrite spirit
He salvation doth impart. [Refrain]

3 The troubles that afflict the just
In number many be;
But yet Jehovah from them all
Doth save and set him free. [Refrain]

4 Ill shall the wicked slay; laid waste
Shall be who hate the just;
The Lord redeems His servant’s souls;
None perish that Him trust. [Refrain]
