We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Soft falls the evening, purple with shadows

Representative Text

1 Soft falls the evening, purple with shadows,
Silently shine out the stars in the sky;
Daylight has faded, earth lies in darkness;
Father in Heaven, we feel Thou art nigh!

2 Over earth’s sadness floateth Thy comfort;
Those who are weary may come and find rest;
All heavy laden lay down their burden,
With the head pillowed on Thy loving breast.

3 Here in the silence, kneeling before Thee,
Father in Heaven, our sins we confess;
Bitter repentance, hearts of contrition,
Lord, we would bring Thee: Forgive us and bless!

4 With Thy belovèd let us be numbered,
Fill us with thankfulness mighty and deep;
Thankful, forgiven, free from all burden,
Let us lie down, Lord, then give us Thy sleep!
