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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Sink not yet, my soul, to slumber

Author: Rist Hymnal: Chorale Book for England, The #167 (1863) Hymnal Title: Chorale Book for England, The Lyrics: Sink not yet, my soul, to slumber, Wake, my heart, go forth and tell All the mercies without number That this bygone day befell; Tell how God hath kept afar All things that against me war, Hath upheld me and defended, And His grace my soul befriended. Father, merciful and holy, Thee to-night I praise and bless, Who to labour true and lowly Grantest ever meet success; Many a sin and many a woe, Many a fierce and subtle foe, Hast Thou check'd that once alarm'd me, So that nought to-day has harm'd me, Now the light, that nature gladdens, And the pomp of day is gone, And my heart is tired and saddens; As the gloomy night comes on; Ah then, with Thy changeless light Warm and cheer my heart to-night, As the shadows round me gather Keep me close to Thee, my Father. Have I e'er from Thee departed, Now I seek Thy face again, And Thy Son, the loving-hearted, Made our peace through bitter pain. Yes, far greater than our sin, Though it still be strong within, Is the Love that fails us never, Mercy that endures for ever. Brightness of the eternal city! Light of every faithful soul! Safe beneath Thy sheltering pity, Let the tempests past me roll: Now it darkens far and near, Still, my God, still be Thou here; Thou canst comfort, and Thou only, When the night is long and lonely. E'en the twilight now hath vanish'd, Send Thy blessing on my sleep, Every sin and terror banish'd, Let my rest be calm and deep. Soul and body, mind and health, Wife and children, house and wealth, Friend and foe, the sick, the stranger, Keep Thou safe from harm and danger. O Thou mighty God, now hearken To the prayer Thy child hath made; Jesus, while the night-hours darken Be Thou still my hope, my aid; Holy Ghost, on Thee I call, Friend and Comforter of all, Hear my earnest prayer, oh hear me! Lord, Thou hearest, Thou art near me. Languages: English

Sink not yet, my soul, to slumber

Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran Hymn-book #31 (1918) Meter: 8.7 Hymnal Title: Evangelical Lutheran Hymn-book Lyrics: 1 SINK not yet, my soul, to slumber, Wake, my heart, go forth and tell, All the mercies without number That this by-gone day befell: Tell how God hath kept afar, All things that against me war, Hath upheld me and defended, And His grace my soul befriended. 2 Father, merciful and holy, Thee to-night I praise and bless, Who to labor true and lowly, Grantest ever meet success; Many a sin and many a woe, Many a fierce and subtle foe Hast Thou checked that once alarmed me, So that naught today has harmed me. 3 Yes, our wisdom vainly ponders, Fathoms not Thy loving thought. Never tongue can tell the wonders That Thy hand for me hath wrought; Thou hast guided me today, That no ill hath crossed my way; There is neither bound nor measure In Thy love's o'erflowing treasure. 4 Now the light that nature gladdens, And the pomp of day is gone, And my heart is tired and saddens, As the gloomy night comes on; Ah, then with Thy changeless light Warm and cheer my heat to-night; As the shadows round me gather, Keep me close to Thee, my Father. 5 Of Thy grace, I pray Thee, pardon All my sins, and heal their smart; Sore and heavy is their burden, Sharp their sting within my heart; And my Foe lays many a snare But to tempt me to despair; Thou alone canst help me, Savior, Punish not my ill behavior. 6 Though I have from Thee departed, Now I seek Thy face again, For Thy Son, the loving-hearted, Made our peace through bitter pain. Yes, far greater than our sin, Though it still be strong within, Is Thy love that fails us never, Mercy that endures forever. 7 Brightness of th'eternal city! Light of every faithful soul! Safe beneath Thy sheltering pity Let the tempests past me roll; Now it darkens far and near, Still, my God, still be Thou here; Thou canst comfort, and Thou only, When the night is long and lonely. 8 From the power of darkness save me, And from Satan's hellish snares, Who endeavors to enslave me, And assails me unawares; Let me never lose the sight Of Thy good and gracious light; Thou canst fill my heart with gladness, That it feel no pain in sadness. 9 Though my weary eyes are closing, And my senses fall asleep, Still my soul, on Thee reposing, Ever must its vigils keep. Let my spirit longingly Always dream, my God, of Thee, Firmly unto Thee e'er cleaving, E'en in sleep Thy grace receiving. 10 Lord, the twilight now hath vanished, Send Thy blessing on my sleep, Every sin and terror banished, Let my rest be calm and deep. Soul and body, mind and health, Wife and children, house and wealth, Friend and foe, the sick, the stranger, Keep Thou safe from harm and danger. 11 O Thou mighty God, now hearken To the prayer Thy child hath made; Jesus, while the night-hours darken, Be Thou still my Hope, my aid; Holy Ghost, on Thee I call, Friend and Comforter of all, Hear my earnest prayer, O hear me! Lord, Thou hearest, Thou art near me. Topics: Evening
