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,

Full Text

1 For a fresh anointing, Lord, for service
Come we now in Jesus’ precious name;
For the blessed Pentecostal fullness,
Every heart with heav’nly love aflame.

Refrain:
Send a new touch of fire on our souls, Lord,
Send it now, Lord, send it now, Lord;
Touch our lips today with the living coals,
Send a new touch of fire on our souls.

2 Make us free to tell the gospel story,
Liberty in service may we have;
Showing forth the Savior’s grace and glory,
Telling of His wondrous pow’r to save. [Refrain]

3 Bringing all we have in consecration
As a living sacrifice for Thee;
Trusting for an uttermost salvation,
Jesus’ precious blood our only plea. [Refrain]

4 Let the great Refiner throughly purge us,
Purify our hearts like as by fire;
While for all the sanctifying fullness
Here our waiting, longing hearts aspire. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
