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.

Savior, now the day is ending

Representative Text

1 Saviour, as this hour is ending,
Once again on Thee we call.
Let Thy Holy Dove, descending,
Bring Thy mercy to us all;
Set Thy seal on every heart;
Jesus, bless us ere we part!

2 Bless the gospel message spoken
In Thine own appointed way;
Give each longing soul a token
Of Thy tender love today;
Set Thy seal on every heart;
Jesus, bless us ere we part!

3 Comfort those in pain or sorrow;
Watch each anxious child of Thine;
Grant us hope for each tomorrow,
Strengthened by Thy grace divine;
Set Thy seal on every heart;
Jesus, bless us ere we part!

4 Pardon Thou each deed unholy;
Lord, forgive each sinful thought;
Make us contrite, pure, and lowly,
By Thy great example taught;
Set Thy seal on every heart;
Jesus, bless us ere we part! Amen.
