We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Send the Power Down

Representative Text

1 As we gather here in Thy presence, Lord,
On consecrated, holy ground,
That we all may bear witness now for Thee,
O Father, send the power down.

Oh, send the power down,
From heaven send it down,
In our hearts today send it down;
Give never failing grace,
Each task to bravely face,
O Father, send the power down.

2 Purify each heart with refining fire,
Let perfect love in us abound,
With all dross removed and each vain desire;
O Father, send the power down. [Refrain]

3 By Thy pow’r divine touch the hearts of men,
Oh, may they hear the joyful sound,
And be cleansed from sin by Thy blood divine;
O Father, send the power down. [Refrain]
