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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Here from the world we turn,
Jesus to seek;
Here may his loving voice
Tenderly speak!
Jesus, our dearest Friend,
While at thy feet we bend,
O let thy smile descend!
'Tis thee we seek.

2 Come, Holy Comforter,
Presence Divine,
Now in our longing hearts
Graciously shine;
O for thy mighty pow'r!
O for a blessed show'r,
Filling this hallowed hour
With joy divine!

3 Saviour, thy work revive:
Here may we see
Those who are dead in sin
Quickened by thee;
Come to our hearts tonight,
Make ev'ry burden light;
Cheer thou our waiting sight;
We long for thee.
