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.

Lord's Day Evening

Now, Lord, another of thy days

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Now Lord, another of thy days
I have on earth enjoy'd,
But ah, how little to thy praise,
My heart has been employ'!

2 Tho' I have heard thy holy word,
And in thy worship join'd,
Alas, how little of it, Lord,
Remains upon my mind!

3 Wast thou to call me to account,
What I have gain'd this day;
How low the product would amount,
I tremble, Lord to say!

4 Much like the barren heath am I,
Tho' oft refresh'd with rain,
Still it continues hard and dry,
And fruitless doth remain.

5 For Jesus' sake my fruitlessness,
Remember, Lord no more;
And whilst my guilt I here confess,
Purge out my heinous score.

6 And e'en my soul shall be undrest,
To take its last remove;
O fit me for tht glorious rest
Thou hast prepar'd above.
