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.

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]
