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,
Harry Plantinga

336. Spirit, Strength of All the Weak

1 Spirit, strength of all the week,
giving courage to the meek,
teaching falt'ring tongues to speak;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

2 Spirit, aiding all who yearn
more of truth divine to learn,
and with deeper love to burn;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

3 Spirit, fount of faith and joy,
giving peace without alloy,
hope that nothing can destroy;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

4 Source of love and light divine,
with that hall'wing grace of thine,
more and more upon us shine;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

5 Holy, loving, as thou art,
come and live within our heart,
never from us to depart;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

6 May we soon, from sin set free,
where thy work may perfect be,
Jesus' face with rapture see:
hear us, Holy Spirit.
