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

45. Lo, the Day is Over

1 Lo, the day is over,
See its fading smile;
Hark, the voice that calleth,
Come and rest awhile.

Rest beside the fountain
Flowing softly now;
In its cooling waters
Lave thy aching brow.

2 Come alone to Jesus,
In His secret place;
Thou art faint, and needest
His refreshing grace. [Refrain]

3 Come alone to Jesus
Thro’ the gate of prayer;
Faithful to His promise,
He will meet thee there. [Refrain]
