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

54. O Bless the Hour

1 O bless the hour when evening comes,
And calls us to our place of pray’r;
With joyful heart our feet we turn
To meet Thine own disciples there.

2 With one accord we gather here,
Our wants make known, our sins confess;
Dear Saviour, wilt Thou now appear
And bless, as only Thou canst bless.

3 Our faith increase, our fears remove,
Make strong the weak, the helpless raise;
May ev’ry heart now feel Thy love,
And ev’ry tongue speak forth Thy praise.

4 No want have we Thou canst not fill,
No need but Thou canst fully meet;
May we obey Thy gracious will,
And find our lives in Thee complete.
