Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

The tranquil hours steal by on drowsy wings

The tranquil hours steal by on drowsy wings

Tune: [The tranquil hours steal by]
Published in 8 hymnals

Full Text

1. The tranquil hours steal by
On drowsy wings and slow,
And over all the peaceful sky
The stars of evening glow.

2. No gath'ring clouds I see,
I hear no rising blast,
I fold my tired hands restfully,
As though all storms were past.

3. Yet whether so or not,
O Lord, thou knowest best,
This night let ev'ry anxious thought
And trembling fear have rest.

4 This night I will lie down
In peace beneath thine eye;
Nor heed what ills unseen may frown,
Since thou art ever nigh.

5 I will lie down to sleep,
From every terror free;
Nor wake to tremble or to weep,
Secure, O Lord, in thee!
