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, while we gather
At this consecrated hour,
We would ask Thy presence with us,
We would feel Thy quick’ning pow’r.

Refrain:
Holy Spirit, while we gather,
From our toil and labor free,
Rest upon us, dwell within us,
Close our hearts to all but Thee.

2 Blessed Spirit, through Thy teaching,
While we read our Saviour’s word
And with Him we hold communion,
May His loving voice be heard. [Refrain]

3 O ‘tis pray’r that brings the blessing
When all other joys have flown,
Pray’r that makes our burdens lighter,
Draws us near our Father’s throne. [Refrain]
