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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Father Almighty, darkness now is deepening

Full Text

1 Father Almighty, darkness now is deep'ning,
And we commend us to Thy gracious keeping;
Oh, may Thine angels guards us in our sleeping,
Protect us through this night!

2 Blessed Lord Jesus, Thou whose side is riven,
Thou by whose wounds our sins are all forgiven:
Draw us to Thee, to Thy dear self in heaven,
From ev'ry sin release!

3 O Holy Spirit, Christ the Son explaining,
Who with the Father and the Son art reigning,
And for us all eternal life art gaining:
Direct us by Thy light!

4 Father and Son and Holy Spirit, blending
All three in One in ages without ending:
Oh, let Thy blessing on us be descending,
Grant us Thy perfect peace!
