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

Representative Text

1 A word of pray’r when the day begins
Brings a day of blessing sure;
A word of pray’r when the twilight dims
Brings a night of rest secure.

Refrain:
A word of pray’r in the morning,
A word of pray’r at night!
When sorely distressed,
A pray’r brings you rest,
Making all things right!

2 A word of pray’r when the heart is sad
Brings you comfort, peace and rest;
A word of pray’r when the days are glad
Adds a joy to hours most blest. [Refrain]

3 A word of pray’r when the heart is lone
Brings a Friend to understand;
A word of pray’r when your strength is gone
Brings the clasp of a mighty hand. [Refrain]

4 Always a pray’r to the God above
Brings a blessing sweet and true;
Enfolds your heart in His tender love,
Lends His boundless strength to you. [Refrain]
