We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

61. Thou Spirit of Almighty God

Thou Spirit of Almighty God,
Of Whom the Christ in promise spoke,
When sorrow cast its gloom abroad,
And throbbing hearts the stillness broke;
They know Thy power who sorrow most,
Come then to soothe, O Holy Ghost.

Thou cam'st to fill the vacant place,
Lest heedless souls should Christ forget,
To show His deeds and words of grace,
When He had risen from Olivet;
To close the links by parting riven,
And bind their souls to His, in heaven.

Thy power is in the souls of men
To burn their dross with heavenly flame,
To rouse the faint to life again,
The erring from their ways reclaim;
Thy calm the troubled soul pervades,
And night before Thy rising fades.

Almighty God, Thou Holy Ghost,
Our hearts refresh, our souls inspire
Come as Thou cam'st at Pentecost,
As rending wind, or tongues of fire;
And when our lips are moved to praise,
Thy grace shall be their theme always.
