During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

1 When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will sing as David sang.
When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will sing as David sang.
I will sing, I will sing,
I will sing as David sang.
I will sing, I will sing,
I will sing as David sang.

2 When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will clap as David clapped.
When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will clap as David clapped.
I will clap, I will clap,
I will clap as David clapped.
I will clap, I will clap,
I will clap as David clapped.

3 When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will dance as David danced.
When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will dance as David danced.
I will dance, I will dance,
I will dance as David danced.
I will dance, I will dance,
I will dance as David danced.

4 When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will praise as David praised.
When the Spirit of the Lord is within my heart
I will praise as David praised.
I will praise, I will praise,
I will praise as David praised.
I will praise, I will praise,
I will praise as David praised.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
