We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 O Lord, descend in mighty pow’r
And pentecostal flame;
Upon my waiting heart this hour
Inscribe thy sweet new name.

For I want salvation, and I’m told that it is free;
Send it down, Lord, send it down just now!
At the cross I’m waiting, let the blessing fall on me;
Send it down, Lord, send it down just now.

2 I’m tired of sin, and from its thrall
I come to find release;
Dear Jesus, on thy name I call,
Oh, fill me with thy peace. [Refrain]

3 I seek salvation, peace and rest,
And freedom from all sin;
Come, take possession of my breast,
And rule and reign within. [Refrain]
