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

Full Text

1. O Comforter, gentle and tender,
O holy and heavenly Dove;
We’re yielding our hearts in surrender,
We’re waiting Thy fullness to prove.

Refrain
We’re waiting, we’re waiting
For Thee, O heavenly Dove;
We’re yielding our hearts to surrender,
We’re waiting Thy fullness to prove.

2. Come strong as the wind o’er the ocean,
Or soft as the breathing of morn,
Subduing our spirit’s commotion
And cheering when hearts are forlorn. [Refrain]

3. O come as the heart searching fire,
O come as the sin cleansing flood;
Consume us with holy desire,
And fill with the fullness of God. [Refrain]

4. Anoint us with gladness and healing;
Baptize us with pow’r from on high;
O come with Thy filling and sealing,
While low at Thy footstool we lie. [Refrain]
