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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

S63. That this evening may be holy, good, and peaceful

That this evening may be holy, good and peaceful,
We entreat you, O Lord.

That your holy angels may lead us
in paths of peace and goodwill, [Response]

That we may be pardoned and forgiven
for our sins and offenses, [Response]

That there may be peace to your Church
and to the whole world, [Response]

That we may depart this life
in faith and fear,
and not be condemned
before the great judgment seat of Christ, [Response]

That we may be bound together
by your Holy Spirit in the communion of
[_________and]all your saints,
entrusting one another
and all our life to Christ. [Response]
