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.
Lord, let my evening prayer
As incense sweet ascend;
And while I lift my hands to Thee,
From heaven in mercy bend.
For in Thy name I hope,
And brightness floods my way;
The night departs, and clouds that roll,
And threaten with dismay.
And in Thy name I trust,
To find Thy promise sure;
Thy cov'nant like the mountains strong,
That evermore endure.
Now, at this evening hour,
My hope and trust renew;
Refresh me as the earth that drinks
The cool refreshing dew.
And when the morning wakes,
Awake my soul, I pray,
That in Thy strength goes forth to bear
The burdens of the day.
