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 We are gathered for Thy blessing,
We will wait upon our God;
We will trust in Him who loved us,
And who bought us with His blood.

Refrain:
Spirit, now melt and move
All of our hearts with love,
Breathe on us from above
With old-time pow'r.

2 We will glory in Thy power,
We will sing of wondrous grace;
In our midst as Thou hast promised,
Come, O come and take Thy place. [Refrain]

3 Bring us low in prayer before Thee,
And with faith our souls inspire,
Till we claim by faith the promise
Of the Holy Ghost and fire. [Refrain]

Amen.
