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.
1 The trespass of the wicked man
Most plainly testifies
That fear of God's most holy Name
Is not before his eyes.
2 He cherishes the empty hope,
Although his sin be great,
It never shall be brought to light
And viewed with righteous hate.
3 The words he utters with his mouth
Are wickedness and lies;
He keeps himself from doing good,
And ceases to be wise.
4 While on his bed his thought he gives
To planning wickedness;
He sets himself in evil ways,
he shuns not to transgress.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
