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

Send the Power Down

Full 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]
