We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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.

Representative Text

1 Holy Spirit, dwell with me,
Make me holy, like to thee;
Bring thou ev’ry tho’t of mine
Into harmony with thine;
Bring thou ev’ry tho’t of mine
Into harmony with thine.

Refrain:
Fill thou me! fill thou me!
All my heart I yield to thee!
With thy holiness divine
Fill this longing heart of mine!

2 Loving Spirit, come to me,
Make me loving, like to thee;
To its depths my being stir,
Print my Master’s likeness there;
To its depths my being stir,
Print my Master’s likeness there. [Refrain]

3 Mighty Spirit, live in me,
I would heav’nly-minded be;
Let my heart its Sovereign own,
Christ its center—Christ alone;
Let my heart its Sovereign own,
Christ its center—Christ alone. [Refrain]

4 Glorious Spirit, fill thou me!
This poor heart I yield to thee;
Take me body, spirit, soul,
Let thy life pervade the whole;
Take me body, spirit, soul,
Let thy life pervade the whole. [Refrain]

YARBROUGH

According to the Handbook to the Baptist Hymnal (1992), Yarbrough "has been attributed to William B. Bradbury, but there is no evidence for this. Its earliest publication seems to have been in New Life (Nashville, 1880) with the arrangement credited to Rigdon M. McIntosh." (p.239)
