Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1. A Bible Christian I will be,
For Christ has done so much for me;
Then how could I my Lord deny,
And on the words of men rely?

The Bible’s good enough for me,
The Bible’s truth my creed shall be;
From human creeds I turn away,
I stand for Christ alone today.

2. Tho’ many follow human plans,
Believe the creeds set up by man;
No other creed have I today
Than Christ, who is the Truth, the Way. [Refrain]

3. The Word by inspiration giv’n,
The chart that points the way to Heav’n;
On this I dare and will depend,
And with my life its truth defend. [Refrain]

4. Believe in Christ, repent of sin,
Confess your faith, and peace you’ll win;
Then ’neath the water with Him go,
And you His peace and joy shall know. [Refrain]
