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, 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

83. Consecration

1 My body, soul, and spirit,
Jesus, I give to thee,
A consecrated off'ring,
Thine evermore to be.

My all is on the Altar,
I'm waiting for the fire.
Waiting, waiting, waiting,
I'm waiting for the fire.

2 O Jesus, mighty Saviour,
I trust in thy great name,
I look for thy salvation,
Thy promise now I claim.

3 O, let the fire, descending
Just now upon my soul,
Consume my humble off'ring,
And cleanse and make me whole.

4 I'm thine, O blessed Jesus,
Washed by thy cleansing blood,
Now seal me by thy Spirit
A sacrifice to God.
