Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from, 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

To God the Holy Ghost
Let homage due be paid,
Who, when we sorrow most,
Comes with His heavenly aid,
And speaks the word alluring, kind,
That fills with peace the anxious mind.

Then winds their raging cease,
And billows sink to rest;
Our souls repose in peace,
As child on mother's breast;
Blest Spirit! there is naught to fear,
When Thou, our Comforter, art near.

Come then, Thou gracious Guest,
Our earnest prayers ascend;
Prepare Thyself a rest,
Abide our constant Friend;
Fulfil the promise Jesus made,
When sorrow on His soul was laid.

Oh, bid our darkness flee,
And with Thy light come in;
Our souls from trouble free,
And from the thrall of sin:
Blest Spirit! condescending, come,
And make our souls Thy chosen home.
