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, upon our night descending,
Bid the light with gladness shine;
Let its rays, through darkness wending,
Round our fears in beauty twine.
Thou art Light, and where Thou dwellest,
Like a traveller, gloom departs;
Come, who threatening clouds dispellest,
And abide within our hearts.
Ah, the visions Thou impartest,
With the morn, and with the noon;
With what glory Thou attirest
Eve, that falleth late or soon.
Flood our lives with varied beauty,
Morn, and noon, and coming night;
Light us in the path of duty,
And at eve let there be light.
