Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Evening shades around us gather,
Fades the light in yonder sky,
Soft and low the voice of nature
Sings again her lullaby.

Refrain:
Lullaby, lullaby,
Soft and low the voice of nature
Sings again her lullaby,
Soft and low the voice of nature
Sings again her lullaby,

2 See the lily on her bosom
Gently close its languid eye,
Now the birds their wings are folding
While she sings her lullaby. [Refrain]

3 Father, hear Thy weary children,
To Thy bosom may we fly,
Ah, thy tender love can soothe us
With a sweeter lullaby. [Refrain]

4 Underneath Thy wings protect us;
Guard, oh, guard us from the sky;
Thou hast taught the voice of nature
How to sing her lullaby. [Refrain]
