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.

850. O Thou Gentle Spirit

1 Oh, what a joyful assurance
The gentle Spirit brings!
Oh, let us honor and rev’rence
His name above all kings.

Refrain:
O Thou gentle Spirit,
Pure, sweet angel dove;
Live in my heart, ever cheer it
With tender words of love.

2 Sweet is the peaceful emotion
That fills my inmost soul;
Blissful and heavenly token,
That Jesus makes me whole. [Refrain]

3 Tranquilly resting in Jesus,
For I am now His own;
Sweet is the promise that greets us,
“I’ll leave thee not alone.” [Refrain]

4 I will adore thee forever;
Oh, live and reign in me!
Jesus, my Savior and keeper,
Oh, help me trust in Thee. [Refrain]
