Hymnary Friends,

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.

Representative Text

1. He has come, the Holy Spirit,
To my longing, waiting heart;
He has come, and like a fountain,
Joy and gladness upward start.

He has come, He has come,
He has come, my Holy Guest;
He has come with all His fullness,
Come to reign within my breast.

2. Often would He hover o’er me,
Waiting me to let Him in;
Sweetest words of promise whisper:
I will cleanse you from all sin. [Refrain]

3. Then I bade Him search the temple,
And reveal to me my need;
Now at last He makes me holy—
He is dwelling there indeed. [Refrain]

4. Like the dew, O so refreshing,
Yet so gently He has come,
And He fills me with His presence,
Makes my heart His blessèd home. [Refrain]

5. O the matchless condescension!
For the triune God in me
Deigns to live and bless forever;
Wondrous glory! Can it be? [Refrain]

6. He has come, O hallelujah!
Joyful bells of Heaven ring,
Fill the earth with sweetest music,
Every soul awake and sing. [Refrain]
