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.
1 O Comforter of God come down
And cause our hearts to be thine own;
Thy heav'nly light in us to shine,
Would fill our hearts with grade divine.
2 Thou blessed gift from God above,
Thou heav'nly light and fire of love;
O let thy pow'r and grace be felt,
And cause our hard'ned hearts to melt.
3 Our sinful state to us reveal,
And Godly sorrow let us feel;
Thy sacred gifts to us impart:
and write thy laws upon each heart.
4 O, fill our souls with heav'nly grace,
Till we thy sacred love embrace;
Thy work begun in us renew,
And finish our Salvation too.
5 Grant us a true and living faith,
And make us faithful unto death;
Help us escape the snares of sin
And grant us joy and peace within.
6 Teach us the father to confess,
The son, our life and righteousness;
O Holy Ghost, thy gifts be giv'n,
And fit us for the courts of heav'n.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XCII
