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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O Lord, send a wave of salvation
Over our souls, over our souls;
We’ll praise thee and give adoration
While ever onward it rolls.

Send, Lord, a wave of salvation,
Hear us we pray, make no delay,
Send, Lord, a wave of salvation
Over our souls today.

2 Send now, like a wave of the ocean,
Even this hour, even this hour;
Subduing all strife and commotion,
Gracious and mighty in power. [Refrain]

3 O quicken us, Lord, by thy Spirit,
Heal us within, heal us within;
By grace we are sav’d by thy merit,
Cleanse us and keep us from sin. [Refrain]
