Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

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

Filled with the Spirit, O, marvelous gift

Full Text

1. Filled with the Spirit! oh, marvelous gift!
Filled with the Spirit! oh, blessed uplift!
Filled with his presence, my Saviour I see,
See him as never before seen by me.
Precious Redeemer! O Jesus my all,
Gladly I give thee my life at thy call!

2. Free from all envy and free from all strife,
Filled with the Spirit, how sweet is my life!
Trials may come; nay, they do come to me,
Come like the waves of a tempest-rocked sea.
Wounded I am, yet I'm kept sweet and calm,
Finding in Jesus a precious, sure balm.

3. Claiming the promise in Jesus' dear name,
Emptied of self, and with love all aflame,
Filled with the Spirit, I walk with my Lord,
Kept by his power in sweetest accord;
Safe in his presence, secure from all ill,
Weak though I am, I can do my Lord's will.

4. Filled with the Spirit! oh, glorious feast
Promised to all; aye, even to the least!
Brought to his banqueting house by the King,
Rapturous joy to the soul he doth bring;
Glad hallelujahs and paeans of praise
Rise unto him, when we walk in his ways.
