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

Ere the tide of life is ebbing

Ere the tide of life is ebbing

Author: E. J. Armstrong
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Ere the tide of life is ebbing,
Ere its sands are running low,
Turn we now to Christ our Savior,
That His peace we here may know.

Christ is ever kind and tender,
He will guard us, He will save;
Let us never from Him wander,
For His life for us He gave.

2 Then, dear Shepherd, close unfold us
In Thy constant, loving care;
We are poor, and weak, and sinful,
Keep us safe from every snare. [Refrain]

3 Death may daily watch our footsteps,
Life may swiftly steal away,
But we know our God will guide us
Through the night to endless day. [Refrain]
