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 Visit us, O precious Savior,
Fix Thy dwelling in each heart;
Come this day and take possession,
Full salvation now impart.

Refrain:
Precious Savior, precious Savior,
Fix Thy dwelling in each heart;
Take possession, take possession,
Full salvation now impart.

2 Breathe upon us, loving Spirit,
Let Thy life our souls inspire;
‘Till Thy nature we inherit,
Filled with holy, pure desire. [Refrain]

3 Finish, Lord, this new creation,
Fix us for our place above;
‘Till with those who serve in glory,
We are perfect in Thy love. [Refrain]

4 Changed from glory unto glory,
Teach us here to sing Thy praise,
‘Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
And a glorious anthem raise. [Refrain]
