Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Come, dearest Lord, baptize us now

O give us, Lord, a Pentecost

Author: Fanny J. Crosby
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Oh, give us, Lord, a pentecost,
This waiting throne inspire;
And, as thou did'st in times of old,
Baptize us all with fire.

Come, dearest Lord, baptize us now,
Now let us feel thy power:
Oh, consecrate us all thine own,
And seal us from this hour.

2 Oh, give us, Lord, a pentecost;
Our faith takes hold on thee,--
A faith that cannot be denied,
When thou art all its plea.

3 Oh, give us, Lord, a pentecost,
An unction from above.
A power that sweeps thro' every heart,
And fills it with thy love.
