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 Hymnary.org, 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.

1 Baptize us anew
With pow'r from on high,
With love, O refresh us!
Dear Saviour, draw nigh.

Chorus:
We humbly beseech thee, Lord, Jesus, we pray,
With love and the Spirit baptize us to-day.

2 Unworthy we cry,
Unholy, unclean,
O wash us and cleanse us
From sin's guilty stain. [Chorus]

3 O heavenly dove,
Descend from on high!
We plead thy rich blessing;
In mercy draw nigh. [Chorus]

4 O list the glad voice!
From heaven it came:
Thou art my beloved,
Well pleased I am.

Chorus:
We praise thee, we bless the, dear Lamb that was slain
We land and adore thee, Amen and Amen.
