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 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]
