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 Gentle Savior, be thou near us,
As we from each other part;
May thy word, its truth impressing,
Shed its light on every heart.

2 As the closing hour draws near us,
And the night steals gently on,
Let thy gracious presence cheer us,
Guard us till the coming morn.

3 When the night of death comes o'er us,
And our earthly prayers are o'er,
O receive us home to glory,
There to praise thee evermore.
