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

55. Precious Words

1 Precious forever! O wonderful words,
Teach me the pathway of duty;
Lead me beside the still waters of life,
Flowing thro' valleys of beauty.

Refrain:
Precious forever to you and to me,
Words that our Savior has spoken,
Bearing salvation far over the sea,
Healing the hearts that are broken!

2 Freely he offers their promise to all,
"Come unto me whosoever;"
Sinners, oppressed with a burden of woe,
Drink of the bountiful river.[Refrain]

3 Wouldst thou refuse the sweet solace he gives
In the midnight of thy sorrow?
Wouldst thou go on in the darkness of sin,
Longing for no bright to-morrow? [Refrain]
