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 Saviour, send Thy spirit now,
As before Thy feet we bow;
Fill our souls with heaven’s peace;
Bid our fears and sorrows cease.

Baptize us with Thy Spirit, Lord,
And open unto us Thy Word;
Oh! Saviour with that Heav’nly pow’r,
Baptize us in this “quiet hour.”

2 Take away the pow’r of sin;
Let the law of love come in;
Spirit, bear Thy fruit divine
In this longing soul of mine. [Refrain]

3 Dove-like Spirit, now descend
While our hearts and voices blend;
Enter now each waiting heart;
Grant us each the better part. [Refrain]

4 Father, while on Thee we wait,
On Thy word we meditate;
May we on the manna feed;
Find supply for ev’ry need. [Refrain]
