We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

84. Det lakker nu ad Aften brat

1 Det lakker nu ad Aften brat,
Bliv hos os, Herre, Dag og Nat,
Lad Ordets Lys, din Lampe skjøn,
Uslukket fryde os i Løn!

2 Vor Tid er ond, som bedst du veed,
Giv du vor tro Bestandighed,
Saa aldrig vorder os fravendt
Dit Guddoms-Ord og Sakrament!

3 Ophold din Kirke, Jesus sød,
Trods al vor Kulde, Søvn og Død,
Saa trindt om Lande Ordet dit
Kan flyve fort, og lyde frit!

4 O Gud, hvor gaar det daarlig til!
Nu Fienden har paa Jord sit Spil;
Saa er din Kirke i Forfald,
Paa Sekter mer veed Ingen Tal.

5 Nedstød de sterke Aanders Trop,
Som høit i Luften sværmer op!
Thi ellers gammel Kristen-Tro
For Lærdom ny faar aldrig Ro.

6 Det gjælder dog, o Herre Krist,
Vor Ære ei, men din forvist,
Staa derfor med din lille Flok,
Som i dit Ord har evig nok!

7 Ja, Ordet af din egen Mund,
Det er vort Skjold og Kirkens Grund,
O lad derved, hvad saa end brast,
Til Døden tro os holde fast!

8 Gud, lad os leve af dit Ord
Hver Dag, vi se paa denne Jord,
Og gaa med det fra Graadens Dal
Til dig i Himlens Glædesal!
