Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative 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.

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]
