Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

All Thru The Night

Full Text

1 Jesus Christ my Lord will keep me
All thru the night,
By His counsel guide and lead me
All thru the night;
Night of sin and death and sorrow;
He will keep till dawns the morrow;
From this world I need not borrow,
All thru the night.

2 Darker grow the shadows round me
Dark is the night;
Snares of Satan oft surround me
Dark is the night.
But my pathway Jesus brightens,
Every heavy burden lightens;
Nothing moves me, nothing frightens,
Tho’ dark the night.

3 Hark! a solemn voice is sounding
All thru the night;
’Tis the voice of God resounding
All thru the night;
Telling of the preparation
Needed by earth’s every nation
To escape the tribulation,
Earth’s darkest night.

4 Sun of righteousness appearing,
He’ll end the night;
I can see the day is nearing
When ends the night
Sleeping saints will rise all glorious,
Raptured, too, will swell the chorus;
Earth will crown my king victorious,
Thus ends the night.
