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

Full Text

1 Lord, be with and watch between us,
Guard the door of ev’ry heart;
Make Thy face to shine upon us,
And to each Thy grace impart.

Refrain:
Grant us peace, that, like a river
Onward flows, and flows forever;
Till in heav’n we all shall gather,
Never more to part again.

2 Lord, be with and watch between us,
Wheresoever we may be;
In our absence from each other,
May we still abide in Thee. [Refrain]

3 Lord, be with and watch between us,
Keep our hearts from ev’ry sin;
Still protect, defend, preserve us,
Going out and coming in. [Refrain]

4 Lord, be with and watch between us,
Lift our souls and light our way;
To a life without a shadow,
In a land of perfect day. [Refrain]
