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 Spirit so holy,
Spirit of love,
Spirit so gentle,
Sent from above;
Priceless possession,
Purchase of blood,
Good beyond measure,
Gift of our Lord.

2 Spirit of wisdom,
Spirit of light,
Spirit of knowledge,
Showing the right;
Guide us and teach us,
Fully to know,
All that in Jesus,
God would bestow.

3 Spirit so humble,
Spirit so meek,
Spirit so kindly,
Helping the weak;
Work in, and through us,
Make us to be,
Lowly and loving,
Yielding to Thee.

4 Spirit of power,
Spirit of God,
Spirit of burning,
Work through Thy word;
Search us and sift us,
Spare not the dross,
Show us that self life,
Ends at the cross.
