We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 They were in an upper chamber,
They were all with one accord,
When the Holy Ghost descended,
As was promised by the Lord.

Refrain
O Lord, send the pow'r just now,
O Lord, send the pow'r just now,
O Lord, send the pow'r just now,
And baptize ev'ry one.

2 Yes, this pow'r from heav’n descended,
With the sound of rushing wind;
Tongues of fire came down upon them,
As the Lord said He would send. [Refrain]

3 Yes, this "old-time" pow'r was given
To our fathers who were true;
This is promised to believers,
And we all may have it too. [Refrain]
