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

1 I praise Thy name, O God of light,
For rest and safety through the night;
Beneath Thy wing, securely kept,
I closed my eyes and sweetly slept.
Redeemed from weariness, I rise
To greet the light with cheerful eyes;
And with the birds on joyful wing,
My soul would rise, and sweetly sing.

Refrain:
I praise Thy name, O God of light,
For rest and safety thro’ the night;
Beneath Thy wing, securely kept,
I closed my eyes and sweetly slept.

2 I thank Thee, Lord, for all Thy care,
For all the blessings that I share—
Life, reason, health, and home, and friends,
And every gift Thy goodness sends.
O let me never, never cease
To cherish trust and thankfulness;
From Thee, Thou maker of my frame,
Each undeservèd blessing came. [Refrain]

3 As numberless as stars of heaven
Are the rich bounties Thou hast given,
And fresh as dews, and sweet as flowers,
The love that smiles on all my hours.
O let me to Thy altar bring
A pure and grateful offering;
And let my thanks, as incense rise
In Christ, a pleasing sacrifice. [Refrain]
