Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
1 Come O thou blessed comforter,
Thy precious gifts on us confer;
Thy glorious light to us reveal,
And cause each heart thy love to feel.
2 May we like the Disciples be:
Who earnestly did wait on thee;
Until thy promises were giv'n
Thy gifts on them sent down from heav'n.
3 May we like they, be fill'd with joy,
Like they, our efforts all employ;
To sing thy praise, and shew thy love,
Thy wonders and thy blessings prove.
4 Thy heav'nly aid and quick'ning pow'rs
Can warm these frozen hearts of ours:
Likewise afford us, life and heat,
To conquer every foe we meet.
5 To feel thy love is life indeed!
Thy gifts and grace is all we need:
To make us happy in thy ways
And fit us for to sing thy praise.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XCIII
