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

Father Almighty, darkness now is deepening

Representative 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!
