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 I cannot seek too early in the morning,
I cannot come to Thee too late at night;
Thou wilt receive me in the earliest dawning,
And Thou wilt welcome in the darkest night.

Refrain:
O God, Thou art my God;
Early will I seek Thee,
early will I seek Thee,
O my God.

2 No evil can approach but Thou beholdest,
No danger compass me but Thou art near;
My trembling heart beneath Thy wing Thou foldest,
Within Thy “secret place” can come no fear. [Refrain]

3 Shall I not seek Thee in life’s early morning,
Shall I not cling to Thee thro' earthly night,
Till Thou reveal to me the heavenly dawning,
And I shall see Thy face, and “no more night”? [Refrain]
