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 How blest are the moments that Jesus bestows,
When wonders of grace to the spirit He shows!
His Word lights the way to the heavenly goal,
His Spirit is near us,
His Spirit is near us,
To teach us, and cheer us, and comfort our soul!

2 Lord Jesus, our Saviour, A Pentecost give
To quicken, and strengthen, and cause us to live;
Grant faith and give love, and in mercy bestow
Whatever is needed,
Whatever is needed,
To exercise faith in our hearts here below.

3 Our hearts are as cold and as hard as a stone;
Such are they by nature, and Thou art alone,
On earth and in heaven, the Saviour who can,
A new heart creating, A new heart creating,
A new heart creating, make each a new man.

4 From sorrows of earth Thou wilt now turn our mind,
For days that are coming, O help us to find
Our joy and our comfort in what Thou hast wrought;
For we are Thy people,
For we are Thy people,
With blood and with anguish so preciously bought.
