Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 At the place of prayer we wait today,
While the Spirit speaks and we obey;
Flames of pow’r are falling,
While on Christ we’re calling.
Let the Pentecostal fire come down.

Refrain:
Let the Pentecostal fire come down,
Let the Pentecostal fire come down;
Swing the gates of glory
While we wait before Thee—
Let the Pentecostal fire come down.

2 All upon Thy altar, Lord, we lay;
Burn the dross, consume the sin, we pray;
Thou wilt not deny us—
Purge and purify us!
Let the Pentecostal fire come down. [Refrain]

3 Let the waves of blessing sweep this way,
Flood our souls with glory, Lord, today!
Now we claim Thy promise,
Send the pow’r upon us!
Let the Pentecostal fire come down. [Refrain]
