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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 In our hearts celestial voices
Softly say,
Day is passing, night is coming;
Kneel and pray!

2 Father, we obey the summons;
Hear our cry:
Pity us, and help our weakness,
Thou most high!

3 For the joys that most we cherish
Praised be Thou!
Good and gracious art Thou ever;
Hear us now.

4 Coming morrows we may never
Live to see;
All we ask Thee is to keep us
Safe with Thee.

5 Take us in Thy arms, and keep us
As Thine own.
Gather us with Thee forever
Round Thy throne.
