Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Al vi vespere gloras mi

Full Text

1. Al vi vespere gloras mi
pro ĉiu bena lum-radi';
min sub flugiloj viaj nun
proktektu ĝis matena sun'.

2. Pro via Fil' mi petas vin
pri ĉiu pek' pardonu min,
ke kun la mondo kaj kun vi
en plena paco estu mi.

3. Instruu min vivadi, ke
nur lito ŝajnu la tombej';
kaj morti, ke ĉiela glor'
min vestu en la juĝa hor'.

4. Ripozu la anim' sur vi;
kaj venu dolĉa dorm' al mi,
ke mi vekiĝu en seren'
por via servo en maten'.

5. Se nokte maldormemas mi,
trankvilajn pensojn donu vi;
malbonajn sonĝojn pelu for,
kaj restu pura mia kor'.

6. Al Dio laŭdu tuta ter’,
Lin laŭdu la ĉiela sfer’;
Laŭdadu ni sen intermit’
Al Patro, Filo, kaj Spirit’.
