We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 What wait I for but Thee?
My hope is in thy Name;
From all my sins deliver me,
Nor put my soul to shame.

2 I suffered silently,
Because Thy will is best;
Remove Thy heavy stroke from me,
For I am sore distressed.

3 When sin thou dost repay
And chasten and restrain,
Man's beauty quickly fades away;
Yea, human life is vain.

4 O Lord, regard my fears,
And answer my request;
Turn not in silence from my tears,
But give the mourner rest.

5 I am a stranger here,
Dependent on Thy grace,
A pilgrim, as my fathers were,
With no abiding place.

6 O spare me and restore
My failing strength, I pray;
Ere I go hence and be no more,
The hand of judgment stay.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
