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

1 Lo! the zephyr softly breathing,
Wakes the earth again;
But the Spirit softly pleading,
Stirs the heart of men.
Precious Spirit! Precious Spirit!
Breathe on us to-day;
Tender Spirit! Tender Spirit!
Leave us not, we pray.

2 Lo! the showers gently falling,
Buds and flowers bring;
Thro’ the gentle Spirit’s calling,
Hearts are made to sing.
Precious Spirit! Precious Spirit!
Fall on us to-day;
Tender Spirit! Tender Spirit!
Leave us not, we pray.

3 Lo! the sunlight softly beaming,
Gives a hundred-fold;
But the graces of the Spirit
Yield the fruit untold.
Precious Spirit! Precious Spirit!
Beam on us to-day;
Tender Spirit! Tender Spirit!
Leave us not, we pray.
