Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Thy Word sheds light upon my path;
a shining light, it guides my feet;
Thy righteous judgments to observe,
my solemn vow I now repeat.

2 In my distress I plead with Thee,
send help according to Thy Word;
accept my sacrifice of praise
and make me know Thy judgments, LORD.

The wicked seek my overthrow,
yet from Thy truth I have not strayed.

4 Thy precepts are my heritage,
for daily they my heart rejoice;
to keep Thy statutes faithfully
shall ever be my willing choice.
