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 My thankful tribute I will pay,
And offer songs of praise.
To God who guarded me this day,
And lets me know his grace.

2 Since by his mercy, love and pow'r,
I liv'd this day to spend;
And I can witness this once more,
That God has prov'd my friend.

3 My evening sacrifice shall be,
The praise and thanks I owe;
And as my God enables me,
I'll love and serve him too.

4 For all the blessings from above,
That are on me bestow'd;
My soul shall make returns of love,
To thee my gracious God.

5 O pardon me, for Jesus' sake,
What evils I have done;
Since no atonement I can make,
That I can claim or own.

6 O Guard me safely through the night
And let me rest in peace,
Until I see the morning-light,
And thank thee for thy grace.
