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

Here as the night is falling,
Stars from the shadows calling,
Lord, to thy shelter flying,
Raise we our evening pray’r,
Only on thee relying,
Make us this night thy care.
Only on thee relying,
Make us this night thy care.
Lord, O Lord, make us thy care.
Make us, O Lord, O Lord, make us thy care.
While all unconscious sleeping,
Oh, have us, have us in thy keeping,
Father, graciously hear us, kindly our strength renew,
Thus for the morrow prepare, prepare us meekly thy will to do.
Thus for the morrow prepare, prepare us meekly thy will to do.
Lord, to thy shelter flying,
We raise our evening pray’r,
On Thee alone relying,
Make us this night thy care,
Make us thy care.
