Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 I thirst th’abundant life to know,
The largeness of Thy love;
Wilt Thou the Holy Ghost bestow,
In fullness from above.

2 Break down the idols, O my King,
And set my spirit free;
Make Thou my soul with gladness sing,
In perfect liberty.

3 I hate the ties of earth that bind
My soul to sensuous things;
I long in fuller life to find
The joy that freedom brings.

4 I would be fully set apart,
And separated be;
Reign Thou supreme within my heart
To all eternity.
