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

1 O Lord! at evening time
Let there be light!
And while in twilight falls the day,
And silence gathers o’er our way,
O! bless all weary ones, we pray,
With rest this night!

2 The beauties of the day,
O Lord! were Thine.
The glory flashed on plain and hill,
And sparkled in the murm’ring rill,
And lit the wild wood warm and still,
With light divine!

3 And darkness tells Thy love
When day is done.
For Thine, the silv’ry stars that keep
Their watch upon the rolling deep,
Or guard the hamlet lock’d in sleep,
‘Till night be gone.

4 O Thou, who slumb’rest not,
Thro’ deepest night!
When shadows cloud the moon-lit shore,
And stillness wraps the lonely moor,
And earth’s brief hour of toil are o’er
Let there be light!
