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.

Representative Text

1 Blessed Bible, how we prize thee,
God’s own Word of life and love;
Bringing hope and joy and comfort,
Down to earth from heav’n above.
Had we not thy Law to guide us,
And reclaim the wand’ring heart;
We should sail o’er stormy waters,
Like a ship without a chart.

2 Blessed Bible, gracious teacher,
Light that all the world may see;
We would read thy precious pages,
And for counsel turn to thee.
Thou the best, the purest treasure
We could ask, or God bestow,
May it be our highest pleasure
More and more of thee to know.

3 Blessed Bible, go thou with us
Till we reach the last dark wave,
Ever telling of His mercy,
Who alone is strong to save.
Go thou with us till we enter
Thro’ the gates, the City fair;
Till we see thy great Inspirer,
And adore His goodness there.
