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

36. All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night

1 All praise to thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light!
Keep me, O keep me safe from harm
Within the shelter of thine arm!

2 Forgive me, O most Holy One,
The wrongs that I, this day have done,
That with myself, the world and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3 Our God we thank thee for the night
And for the pleasant morning light,
For rest and food and loving care
And all that makes the world so fair.

4 Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good,
May all we do in work or play
Be done with love and rest this day.
