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, 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

Full Text

1 Holy Spirit, comfort me,
I am sadly stained with sin;
Help Thou my infirmity,
Lead me where the Lamb hath been.

Thou canst guide me o’er the road,
On to Jesus, on to God;
On to Jesus, on to Jesus;
On to Jesus, on to God.

2 I have grieved Thee oft and sore,
Quenched Thy gentle, kindly voice;
Take, O take me evermore,
Let my soul again rejoice. [Refrain]

3 Finish Thou the work in me,
Now so graciously begun;
Thanks and praise my song shall be,
To the blessed Three in One. [Refrain]
