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 Like Jacob, in his Bethel rest,
The angels are looking on me;
They watch my pillow—I am blest,
The angels are looking on me.

Refrain:
All night, all night,
The angels are looking on me;
All night, all night,
The angels are looking on me.

2 Each night I lay me down to sleep,
The angels are looking on me;
I know I’m safe, for angels keep,
The angels are looking on me. [Refrain]

3 And when I wake, new toils to meet,
The angels are looking on me;
God’s presence makes my joy complete,
The angels are looking on me. [Refrain]

4 A pilgrim to the heav’nly land,
The angels are looking on me;
My steps are kept by God’s command,
The angels are looking on me. [Refrain]

5 And till I reach my home at last,
The angels are looking on me;
With every tear and trial past,
The angels are looking on me. [Refrain]
