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.

114. One of the Sweet Old Chapters

1 One of the sweet old chapters,
After a day like this,
A day of toil and sorrow,
And evening brings no kiss.
Bring out the fam’ly Bible
That father used to read,
The one that mother loved so well
In ev’ry time of need.

One of the sweet old chapters,
From God to His children dear;
O gracious, heav’nly Father,
Grant us the ear to hear.

2 One of the sweet old chapters,
That always will avail,
So full of heav’nly comfort,
When earthly comforts fail.
A sweet and blessed message
From God to His children dear,
So rich in precious promises,
So full of love and cheer. [Refrain]

3 One of the sweet old chapters,
When comes the lonely night,
When all things earthly fail us;
And tears have dimmed our sight,
This only can relieve us,
A message from above,
Then we can rest so sweetly,
In faith and hope and love. [Refrain]
