During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

Pentecostal Blessing

Representative Text

1 We have heard the blessed story,
Now we need Thy promised glory,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing;
To the old land marks returning,
With our hungry hearts now yearning,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing.

Chorus:
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing,
Like a rushing, mighty wind
Let the Holy Ghost come in,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing.

2 While we’re watching, waiting, pleading
For Thy promised grace exceeding,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing;
Sweeping down from highest heaven,
Cleanse our hearts from sinful leaven,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing. [Chorus]

3 Let us revel in Thy glory,
Pray and sing and tell the story,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing;
Till each kindred, tribe and nation
Shall be blest with Thy salvation,
Lord send on us the Pentecostal blessing. [Chorus]
