Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 There’s a blessed promise giv’n
By the Father up in Heav’n,
Oh, tarry in the city for the power!
’Twas the promised Holy Ghost
Which He gave at Pentecost,
Oh, tarry in the city for the power!

Refrain:
Oh, tarry for the power,
The old, anointing power,
Oh, tarry for another Pentecost!
The Spirit then will fall,
Baptize you one and all,
Oh, tarry for the blessèd Holy Ghost.

2 This great blessing is for you
If to Christ you will be true,
But tarry in the city for the power!
Let us hear His great command,
Go, disciple all the land,
But tarry in the city for the power! [Refrain]

3 He will cleanse your heart from sin,
Make you pure like Him within,
So tarry in the city for the power!
He will holiness implant,
And all grace to you will grant,
So tarry in the city for the power! [Refrain]

4 He will comfort, teach and fill,
If to Him you give your will,
Yes, tarry in the city for the power!
He’ll anoint you from above,
Fill your heart with perfect love,
Yes, tarry in the city for the power! [Refrain]

5 Our great Comforter has come,
And the church must give Him room,
Now tarry in the city for the power!
He’ll baptize with sacred fire,
Keep you till you’re called up higher,
Now tarry in the city for the power! [Refrain]
