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

375. Lord God, the Holy Ghost

1 Lord God, the Holy Ghost,
in this accepted hour,
as on the day of Pentecost,
descend with all thy power.

2 We meet with one accord
in our appointed place,
and wait the promise of our Lord,
the Spirit of all grace.

3 Like mighty rushing wind
upon the waves beneath,
move with one impulse, ev'ry mind,
one soul, one feeling breathe.

4 The young, the old inspire
with wisdom from above;
and give us hearts and tongues of fire
to pray and praise and love.

5 Spirit of light, explore
and chase our gloom away,
with luster shining more and more
unto the perfect day.

6 Spirit of truth, be thou
in life or death our guide;
O Spirit of adoption, now
may we be sanctified.
