Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 I never can forget the moment
When after consecrating all,
And trusting in a full atonement,
I felt the fire of Pentecost fall.

I feel the fire of Pentecost burning just now,
Burning just now, burning just now,
I feel the fire of Pentecost burning just now,
‘Tis burning in my soul.

2 My heart received the fiery cleansing,
My nature was at last renewed;
My soul with joy was over flowing,
With Pentecostal power endued. [Refrain]

3 The inward struggle now is ended,
I’ve won the fight in Jesus name;
And with His free and full salvation,
The Pentecostal blessing I claim. [Refrain]

4 Each justified and true believer
Should be baptized with holy fire,
To burn the roots of sin forever,
And purge away all evil desire. [Refrain]
