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 Holy Spirit, living water,
O refresh my thirsty soul;
Let the billows of Thine ocean
Over me in cleansing roll.

With Thyself, the holy unction,
Now anoint my head and heart,
And endue me with that power
Which alone Thou canst impart.

2 Wash me, Holy Spirit, wash me,
Till each stain be white as snow;
Be within a well of water,
Fill me now, and overflow. [Refrain]

3 O impart that heav’nly wisdom,
Pure and peaceable and kind;
Wisdom which has no dissembling,
An impartial, lowly mind. [Refrain]
