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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

Kreinto Sankta, la Spirit'
  Lumigu ĉiun per vizit',
Per ĉielfajro, ni petas Vin,
  Plenigu, Inspiranto, nin.

De Dio estas Vi la don',
  La Font' de vivo kaj admon' ;
Lumigu al la petantar'
  Okulojn blindajn en erar'.

Vizaĝojn, ho, ĝojigu, Di',
  Abunde Via grac' al ni ;
La malamikojn pelu for,
  Kaj donu pacon, ho Sinjor'.

El ambaŭ, kiel unu, Vin
  Kun Patro, Fil', sciigu nin ;
Por ke la tem' sen variant'
  Tra l' aĝoj estu nia kant' :

Laŭdata estu la merito
De l' Patro, Filo kaj Spirito.      Amen.

Arthur Llewellyn (or Llewelyn) Curry was born in 1870 and died in 1949. An Anglican priest, he collaborated on the periodical Eklezia Revuo (1918-1925), and four of his hymn translations appear in Himnaro: Unua Kolekto (n.d.), a collection of hymns that had appeared in that review. One of these, his translation of Heber's Holy, holy, holy! Lord God almighty!, is one of the sources of the composite translation now standard in Esperanto. Rev. Curry is buried in St Mary’s Church Cemetery, Bucklesham, Suffolk, England. Go to person page >
