Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Now the day is over,
night is drawing nigh,
shadows of the evening
steal across the sky.

2 Jesus, give the weary
calm and sweet repose;
with thy tend'rest blessing
may our eyelids close.

3 Grant to little children
visions bright of thee;
guard the sailors, tossing
on the deep blue sea.

4 Comfort ev'ry suff'rer
watching late in pain;
those who plan some evil
from their sin restrain.

5 Through the long night watches
may thine angels spread
their white wings above me,
watching round my bed.

6 Glory to the Father,
glory to the Son,
and to thee, blest Spirit,
whilst all ages run.
