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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O holy Ghost! arise,
Thy temple fill:
With cleansing fire baptize
My yielded will.

2 Breath from above, refine
My waiting heart:
Impulse and pow’r divine

4 Cleanse, and illume, and fill—
It shall be so:
Then send me where Thou will,
And I will go.
