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 Watching thro’ the night and waiting for the dawn;
Looking for the first bright ray of morn;
Feeling all the gloom of the midnight hour,
Yet I’m trusting all to His love and pow’r.

Chorus:
Watching thro’ the night;
Waiting for the dawn;
Looking for the first bright ray of morn;
Feeling all the gloom of the midnight hour,
Yet I’m trusting all to His love and pow’r.

2 Living in the valley, humble, meek, and low;
Thus it is I triumph o’er ev’ry foe;
Waiting till the summons shall call me home;
Out into the sunshine beyond the gloom. [Chorus]

3 Working for the Master, patiently I wait;
Knocking for admittance at Mercy’s gate;
Trusting Him to guide, where I cannot see;
Knowing that His care is still over me. [Chorus]
