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 sang one day, a sad sweet song,
‘Twas at the twilight hour;
A flame of love came gently down—
I felt its melting pow’r.

O the blessing and the power that the Lord gave me then,
I never shall forget, I never shall forget;
Even now ’tis stealing over me again and again,
It lingers with me yet.

2 So filled was I, I sang no more,
My heart o’erflowed with bliss;
With tearful eye and throbbing breast
I knelt in thankfulness. [Refrain]

3 Thus, oft my Saviour comes to me,
When all is lone and still;
Each blessing makes me long the more
To do His holy will. [Refrain]

4 I praise the Lord, the fire still burns
With Pentecostal flame;
The altar of my soul’s aglow,
All glory to His name. [Refrain]
