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.

Who, Lord, shall to thy courts repair

Who, Lord, shall to thy courts repair

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Who, Lord, shall to thy courts repair.
And find a gracious welcome there?
Who, in thy holy hill above,
Shall dwell forever in thy love?
2. He who uprightly guides his ways,
From rules of justice never strays;
Whose every word doth truth impart.
And speaks the meaning of his heart.

3. Who with his tongue backbiteth not,
Nor seeks his neighbors fame to blot;
Who entertains no ill report,
Nor spreads it to his neighbor's hurt;
4. Whose eyes, the vile, though great, despise,
But all that fear the Lord doth prize;
Whose oath, and promise, firmly bind.
Nor hopes, nor fears, shall change his mind:

5. No gains by griping usury makes.
Nor bribes against the harmless takes:
The man does thus, by God approved.
Stands firm, and never shall be moved.
