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

680. O Spirit of Life

1 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
In every need Thou bringest aid,
Proceeding forth from God’s great throne,
From God, the Father and the Son;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

2 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
Increase our faith in our dear Lord;
Unless your grace the power should give,
None can believe in Christ and live;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

3 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
Make us to love your sacred Word;
The holy flame of love impart,
That charity may warm each heart;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

4 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
Enlighten us by that same Word;
Teach us to know the God's radiant love,
Lead us to Christ who reigns above:
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.
