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

48. Lord, Thou art good and kind

I
Lord, Thou art good and kind,
And full of tender grace;
Now make Thy countenance to shine,
And let me see Thy face.

II
For O, my heart is sad,
Because my sin I know;
And though I strive, I fail,
And still ungodly grow.

III
And all my aims are lost,
And all my striving vain,—
Wilt Thou refresh my soul,
And visit me again?

IV
’Tis morning when the sun
Upon the mountain glows;
’Tis evening when the shade
Upon the valleys grows;

V
And when Thy face I see,
’Tis morning in my soul;
But when Thou turn’st away,
The evening shadows roll.

VI
And night comes on apace,
And all forlorn I sigh;—
O, bid the morning dawn,
Look on me lest I die.

VII
O, Thou art good and kind,
And full of tender grace;
Now make Thy countenance to shine,
And let me see Thy face.
