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

138. Thy Word Is Like a Garden, Lord

1 Thy Word is like a garden, Lord,
With flowers bright and fair;
And ev’ry one who seeks may pluck
A lovely cluster there;
And ev’ry one who seeks may pluck
A lovely cluster there.

2 Thy Word is like a deep, deep mine;
And jewels rich and rare
Are hidden in its mighty depths
For ev’ry searcher there;
Are hidden in its mighty depths
For ev’ry searcher there.

3 Thy Word is like a starry host:
A thousand rays of light
Are seen to guide the trav’ler
And make his pathway bright;
Are seen to guide the trav’ler
And make his pathway bright.

4 Thy Word is like an arm’ry grand,
Where soldiers may repair
And find for life's long battle day
All needful weapons there;
And find for life's long battle day
All needful weapons there.

5 O may I love Thy precious Word,
May I explore the mine,
May I its fragrant flowers glean,
May light upon me shine!
May I its fragrant flowers glean,
May light upon me shine!

6 O may I find my armor there!
Thy Word, my trusty sword,
I'll learn to fight with ev’ry foe
The battle of the Lord;
I'll learn to fight with ev’ry foe
The battle of the Lord.
