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

Representative Text

1 God be with you thro’ the night,
‘Neath the shadow of His wing;
Keep you safe till morning light,
While the angels softly sing.

Refrain:
Sheltered, sheltered, ‘neath His mighty wing,
Sheltered, sheltered, while the angels sing;
Sheltered, Sheltered ‘till the morning light,
God be with you through the night.

2 God be with you thro’ the night,
Wake you to another day;
Guide you thro’ the morning light,
Keep you ever in His way. [Refrain]

3 When death’s night shall hover o’er,
God be with you thro’ the night;
Bear you to the golden shore,
Where there’s everlasting light. [Refrain]
