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

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]
