More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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.

376. Put Forth, O Lord, Thy Spirit's Might

1 Put forth, O God, thy Spirit's might
and bid thy Church increase
in breadth and length and depth and height
her unity and peace.

2 Let works of darkness disappear
before thy conqu'ring light;
let hatred and tormenting fear
pass with the passing night.

3 Let what apostles learned of thee
be ours from age to age;
their steadfast faith, our unity;
their peace, our heritage.

4 O Judge divine of human strife!
O Vanquisher of pain!
to know thee is eternal life,
to serve thee is to reign.
