We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Lord of mercy, and of might,
Dwelling in effulgence bright,
Shed Thy gracious beams on me,
In Thy freedom make me free.

Fill me now, O fill me now;
Holy Spirit, fill me now;
Take my life and make it Thine,
Cleanse and fill by pow’r divine.

2 Lord of earth, and heav’n above,
Fill me now with perfect love;
Sanctify by pow’r divine,
And from dross my heart refine. [Chorus]

3 Lord of light, and life, and pow’r,
Guide me, guard me ev’ry hour;
Gird me for life’s toilsome way;
Turn its darkness into day. [Chorus]

4 Lord of grace, and truth, and love,
Fit me here for heav’n above;
Let me lose my will in Thine;
In Thine image let me shine. [Chorus]
