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.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Jesus Christ, the stars of night
Faintly shine thro' evening light,
While before Thine altar we
Lift our thankful hearts to Thee.
2 On the distant hills the day
Sinks in deep'ning shade away;
But Thy presence ever near,
Shields us in the hour of fear.
3 As the evening dews descend,
Be Thou with us, heavenly Friend!
Let Thy Spirit's whispering,
Peace to all our spirits bring!
4 Son of God! Thy glorious praise
From our trembling lips we raise,
On Thy throne of light on high,
Hear and heed the contrite sigh!
5 Savior! Though our words are weak,
'Tis Thy glory now we seek!
May our faint example shine,
Teach us that its light is Thine!
6 Jesus Christ! the stars of night
Brightly shine with joyous light;
While in adoration we,
Lord of Love, look up to Thee!Source: Evangelical Lutheran hymnal: with music #313a
