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. 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.
