Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

1 Peacefully, tranquilly,
Passing away,
Yonder the light of the
Dear Sabbath day;
Peacefully, tranquilly,
Passing away,
Yonder the light of the
Dear Sabbath day.

Refrain:
Father, we turn to Thee,
Seeking Thy aid;
O, may our trust in Thee
Ever be staid.

2 Thanks for Thy holy word,
Graciously given;
Thanks for the narrow way
Leading to heav’n;
Thanks for Thy holy word,
Graciously given;
Thanks for the narrow way
Leading to heav’n. [Refrain]

3 Silently, pensively,
Evening draws near;
Voices in chorus sweet,
Gently we hear;
Silently, pensively,
Evening draws near;
Voices in chorus sweet,
Gently we hear. [Refrain]

4 Lovingly, tenderly,
Now, on Thy breast,
Hold us in safety, Lord,
Fold us to rest;
Lovingly, tenderly,
Now, on Thy breast,
Hold us in safety, Lord,
Fold us to rest. [Refrain]
