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 One more day its twilight brings,
One more day its shadow flings;
One sweet hour of grateful prayer,
Calling to rest from toil and care.

One day nearer the land of song,
One day nearer the white-robed throng;
There at the gate they watch and wait
For a meeting that shall last forever.

2 One more day of conflict passed,
One more vict’ry gained at last;
One sweet hour in praise to spend,
While at a throne of grace we bend. [Refrain]

3 One more day of reaping o’er,
One more sheaf to crown our store;
One sweet hour to bathe the soul
Here in the streams of joy that roll. [Refrain]

4 Saviour, when as now we rest,
Leaning, trusting on thy breast,
We shall cross the narrow sea
Still may we sing, inspired by thee:— [Refrain]
