We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Great God in Heaven

Great God in heaven, who by my bed

Tune: [Great God in heaven, who by my bed]
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Great God in heav'n, who by my bed
Thy faithful watch didst keep;
And night's best blessings o'er me shed,
Sweet rest and balmy sleep.

2 I thank Thee, Lord and Father mild,
And all thine angels, too;
And pray Thee still to help Thy child,
Thy holy will to do.
