Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Non Nobis, Domine

Language: English

Non Nobis, Domine! 
Not unto us, O Lord, 
The praise and glory be 
Of any deed or word. 
For in Thy judgement lies 
To crown or bring to nought 
All knowledge and device 
That man has reached or wrought.

And we confess our blame, 
How all too high we hold 
That noise which men call fame, 
That dross which men call gold. 
For these we undergo 
Our hot and godless days, 
But in our souls we know 
Not unto us the praise.

O Power by whom we live 
Creator, Judge and Friend, 
Upholdingly forgive, 
Nor leave us at the end. 
But grant us yet to see, 
In all our piteous ways, 
Non Nobis, Domine, 
Not unto us the praise.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
