Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

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

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

333. Gracious Spirit, Dove Divine

1 Gracious Spirit, Dove divine,
let thy light within me shine;
all my guilty fears remove,
fill me full of heav'n and love.

2 Speak thy pard'ning grace to me,
set the burdened sinner free;
lead me to the Lamb of God,
wash me in his precious blood.

3 Life and peace to me impart;
seal salvation on my heart;
breathe thyself into my breast,
earnest of immortal rest.

4 Let me never from thee stray,
keep me in the narrow way,
fill my soul with joy divine,
keep me, Lord, forever thine.
