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

Texts

The day is gently sinking to a close

Hail, gladdening Light, of His pure glory poured

O Thou Great Shepherd of Thy Chosen Race

O Thou great Shepherd of Thy chosen race,
Who leadest like a flock Thy Israel dear,
From out the cherubim reveal Thy face,
Before our host now let Thy might appear.
Come Thou, O God, to save us and restore;
We shall be saved when shines Thy face once more.
