Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Lord, we seek from thee a blessing

Full Text

1 Lord, we seek from thee a blessing, so abundant, rich and free,
As before thy throne of mercy we would bow;
Let us know this very hour
How unbounded is thy pow’r,
Send thy promised blessing now!

Refrain:
Send thy promised blessing now!
Send thy promised blessing now!
Let us know this very hour
How unbounded is thy pow’r,
Send thy promised blessing now!

2 We would claim the blest assurance that is written in thy word,
As each heart again renews to thee its vow;
Send the Pentecostal flame,
For thy pow’r is still the same,
Send thy promised blessing now! [Refrain]

3 Open now the heav’nly windows, that thy blessings may come down
To each heart that waits within thy courts below;
Let us know this very hour
Hour unbounded is thy pow’r,
Send thy promised blessing now! [Refrain]
