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.

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]
