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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Within Thy temple, Lord,
We think on mercies past;
Let earth all praise accord,
Long as Thy Name shall last;
The righteous judgments of her King
Let Zion and her daughters sing.

2 About Mount Zion go,
Her towers and ramparts tell;
That ye her strength may know,
Mark her defenses well;
Her royal palaces behold
That ye her glories may unfold.

3 To all the coming race
Repeat the message o'er:
This mighty God of grace
Is ours for evermore;
Yea,He our Savior will abide,
And unto death will be our guide.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
