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.

45Father, we thank Thee for the nightONSLOWText
46The darkness now is over
47Keep thou the door of my lips
48Lord, I pray, if today some should wrong or trouble me
49Father, bless our school today; Be in all we do and say
50Little stars are shining
51Jesus, tender shepherd, hear us
52In the dark and silent night
53All praise to thee, my God, this night
54Round me falls the night
55The Lord be with us as we walk
56Jesus, meek and gentle
58How shall the young direct their way
59Holy Bible, book divine, Precious treasure, thou art mine
61Blest is he who loves God's precepts
63The earth, with all that dwell therein
66Come, Jesus, Holy Child, to me
67O come, O come, Emmanuel [Immanuel], And ransom
69As with gladness men of old
71O leave your sheep, you shepherds
72Away in a [the] manger, no crib
73Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright
74O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant
75Joy to the world, the Lord is [has] come
76Let our gladness know [have] no end
77O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see
78Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed
79Saw you never in the twilight When the sun
80Bethlehem lay sleeping
81Long ago within the temple
82I love to think that Jesus saw
84I think, when I read that [the] sweet story of old
85Tell me the stories of Jesus, I love to hear
86All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer, King
87A little ship was on the sea
88Hosanna, loud hosanna, The little [joyful] children sang
89Thou didst leave Thy throne and Thy kingly crown
90There is a green hill far away, Without a city wall
91When I survey the wondrous cross
92Jesus, tender Savior, hast thou died for me
93Glory be to Jesus, who in bitter pain
94O dearest Lord, thy sacred head
97Christ the [our] Lord is [has] risen today, [Alleluia] [Sons of men]
100We welcome glad Easter when Jesus arose
101On wings of living light, At earliest dawn of day
102Alleluia, Easter angels
103Jesus, high in glory
104The golden gates are lifted up
105Far above in highest heaven
106Golden harps are sounding
107Ascended is our God and Lord
108Songs of praise the angels sang
109The king shall come when morning dawns
110Come, Holy Spirit, come; O hear my [our] humble [an infant's] prayer
111Dwell in me, O blessed Spirit
112Holy Spirit, hear us, Help us while we sing [pray]
114Let the Savior's gentle call
116Remember all the people
117Jesus loves the children for he said
119Once again, dear Lord, we pray
120I belong to Jesus, I am not my own
121Jesus loves me, this I know, For the Bible
122Jesus, Friend of little [all the] children
123Beautiful Savior, King of creation
124Guard, my child, thy tongue
125Father, lead me day by day In Thine own, Thy perfect way
126Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, With the cross
127Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross
128Little children, come to Jesus, Hear him saying
129The wise may bring their learning
