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.

Full Text

1 Thy breath, O Lamb, as rushing wind
Descendeth from above
With tongue of fire to extend
Through vessels washed in blood.

2 As water rains o’er barren earth,

To manifest Thy name.

Might testify a mystery
To souls undone by death.

4 That in Thee is eternal life
Thou givest all who come
By simple faith, and through Thee find
The promised Three in One.

5 ’Tis of this treasure love is sown
Whose leaves in me unfurl;
A witness so the lost might know
God’s mercy for this world.

6 Lo, God’s right hand through nature frail
Doth tend benighted ground.
Its light and life will victory hail
By fruit and golden crowns.
