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.

Life's twilight hour

Representative Text

1 When in the twilight, thinking of the past,
How in this life the shadows fall so fast,
We see the hope that helps to make us strong,
His promise cheers us when the day seems long.
Visions of glory burst upon our sight;
He says, "At evening-time there will be light."
Light will come to brighten
All life's darkened way;
He will send you sunshine At the close of day;
When your trials are over,
And you struggles cease,
You will find at evening
He will speak "Peace"-
He will speak "Peace".

2 We think today of loved ones gone before,
Safe in the Home-land, safe forevermore;
so be not lonely, weary by the way,
There'll be reunion at the close of day.
E'en tho' thro' gloom of earth we grop our way,
Life's Twilight Hour begins Heav'n's glorious day.
Just a ray of sunshine,
At the eventide,
From the One who leads you
Walking by your side;
He is very near you,
Giving strength and pow'r-
He'll send light to brighten
Life's Twilight Hour,
Life's Twilight Hour.
