Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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

On behalf of the entire team,

Come, Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 979 hymnals Scripture: Romans 5:5 Lyrics: 1 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove, With all Thy quickening powers; Kindle a flame of sacred love In these cold hearts of ours. 2 In vain we tune our formal songs, In vain we strive to rise; Hosannas languish on our tongues, And our devotion dies. 3 Dear Lord! and shall we ever live At this poor dying rate? Our love so faint, so cold to Thee, And Thine to us so great! 4 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove, With all Thy quickening powers; Come, shed abroad the Savior’s love And that shall kindle ours.

Spirit of God, Who Dwells within My Heart

Author: George Croly Meter: Appears in 299 hymnals Scripture: Romans 5:5 Lyrics: 1 Spirit of God, who dwells within my heart, wean it from sin, through all its pulses move. Stoop to my weakness, mighty as you are, and make me love you as I ought to love. 2 I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies, no sudden rending of the veil of clay, no angel visitant, no opening skies; but take the dimness of my soul away. 3 Did you not bid us love you, God and King, love you with all our heart and strength and mind? I see the cross there teach my heart to cling. O let me seek you and O let me find! 4 Teach me to feel that you are always nigh; teach me the struggles of the soul to bear, to check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; teach me the patience of unceasing prayer. 5 Teach me to love you as your angels love, one holy passion filling all my frame: the fullness of the heaven-descended Dove; my heart an altar, and your love the flame.

Author: Richard F. Littledale Meter: Appears in 91 hymnals Scripture: Romans 5:5 First Line: Come down, O Love divine Lyrics: 1 Come down, O love divine! Seek out this soul of mine and visit it with your own ardor glowing: O Comforter, draw near, within my heart appear, and kindle it, your holy flame bestowing. 2 O let it freely burn, till earthly passions turn to dust and ashes in its heat consuming; and let your glorious light shine ever on my sight, and make my pathway clear, by your illuming. 3 Let holy charity my outward vesture be, and lowliness become my inner clothing; true lowliness of heart which takes the humbler part, and for its own shortcomings weeps with loathing. 4 And so the yearning strong with which the soul will long shall far surpass the power of human telling; for none can guess its grace till we become the place in which the Holy Spirit makes his dwelling.

Salvation unto Us Has Come

Author: Paul Speratus Meter: Appears in 18 hymnals Scripture: Romans 5:1-11 Lyrics: 1 Salvation unto us has come by God’s free grace and favor. Our works cannot avert our doom; the law can save us never. Faith looks to Jesus Christ alone, who for his people did atone; he is our one Redeemer. 2 What God did in his law demand and none to him could render caused wrath and woe on ev'ry hand for man, the vile offender. Our flesh has not the pure desires God's holy law of us requires, and lost is our condition. 3 It was a false, misleading dream that God his law had given so sinners could themselves redeem and by their works gain heaven. The law is just a mirror bright to bring the inbred sin to light that lurks within our nature. 4 From sin our flesh could not abstain; sin held its sway unceasing. The task was hopeless and in vain; our guilt was e’er increasing. None can remove sin’s poisoned dart or purify our guileful heart, so deep is our corruption. 5 Yet as the law must be fulfilled or we must die despairing, Christ Jesus came; God’s wrath he stilled, our human nature sharing. The law he has for us obeyed and thus the Father’s vengeance stayed which over us had rulèd. 6 All blessing, honor, thanks, and praise to Father, Son, and Spirit, the God who saved us by his grace—- all glory to his merit! O triune God in heav’n above, who has revealed your saving love, your blessèd name be hallowed.
