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.
1 The day is spent, and evening shadows fall,
Our wearied souls for sweet refreshment call;
Far from the world, Lord, in Thy house we meet,
And lay our burdens at Thy blessed feet.
Lord, meet with us, with us abide,
While softly falls the eventide;
Make Thou our hearts within us glow,
Till all Thy holy will we know!
2 We drop the cares and sorrows of the day,
And come with Thee apart, to rest and pray;
Lord, in our midst be Thou, we humbly plead,
And grant the blessing that our spirits need. [Refrain]
3 How blest the hour that heart to heart we spend,
In tender converse with our heav’nly Friend;
When gathered here together in His name,
The promise of His holy word we claim. [Refrain]Source: Gloria Deo: a Collection of Hymns and Tunes for Public Worship in all Departments of the Church #20
