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 In the gloaming, oh, my darling! when the lights are dim and low,
And the quiet shadows, falling, softly come and softly go,
When the winds are sobbing faintly with a gentle, unknown woe,
Will you think of me and love me, As you did once, long ago?

2 In the gloaming, oh, my darling! think not bitterly of me!
Tho' I pass'd a way in silence, left you lonely, set you free,
For my heart was crush'd with longing; what had been could never be.
It was best to leave you thus, dear, Best for you, and best for me,

It was best to leave you thus, Best for you, and best for me.
