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 Still with my Saviour when the sun sinks in the west,
Still in the gloaming, leaning on His breast;
And until the morning breaks eternal in the sky,
Shall my precious Saviour still be ever night.

Jesus, my Saviour, stay forever near my side;
Jesus, my Saviour,
Safe in Thee I hide.

2 Only in Jesus has my soul supreme delight,
Jesus who robes me in His garments white;
So, until the day dawn I shall rest beneath His wing,
Then shall dwell forever with my God and King. [Refrain]

3 Dawn, happy morning, day of gladness and of rest,
Bright day of crowning, last of all and best;
Rise, thou Sun of beauty, O reveal Thy glory now,
Ev’ry tongue shall bless Thee ev’ry knee shall bow. [Refrain]
