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

Pour down thy spirit from above [on high]

Representative Text

1. Pour down Thy Spirit from above,
And bid all strife and discord cease;
Joint heart to heart in mutual love,
O reign among us, Prince of Peace.

2. If in the souls where love should be
Arise the storms of fierce self-will,
Calm Thou that troubled, angry sea,
Speak to the tempest, Peace, be still.

3. If rude reproach be o’er us flung,
And slander wound as with a sword,
Rule Thou th’unruly answering tongue,
And silence every vengeful word.

4. Whene’er in this wild world we meet,
Unkindly deeds that anger move,
Teach us forgiveness, triumph sweet,
To conquer evil will with love.

5. In every land, in every home,
In every heart let love increase;
Let love proclaim Thy kingdom come,
O reign among us, Prince of Peace.
