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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative 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.
