We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

45. Our God, We Thank Thee for the Night

1 Our God, we thank
thee for the night,
And for the pleas-
ant morning light,
For rest and food
and loving care,
And all that makes
the day so fair.

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