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.

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

1 Descend, O flame of sacred fire,
Now may we feel Thy quickening power;
To purest love each heart inspire,
And keep us in each trying hour.

2 Come like a rushing wind, we pray,
And let Thy presence fill this place;
Oh, take our unbelief away,
Baptize us with Thy boundless grace.

3 Come down from Heaven, O quenchless flame,
Through Christ, the everlasting Son;
The riches of His love proclaim,
And melt our every heart in one.
