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

Representative Text

1. Blessèd Bible! precious treasure!
Will of Him who reigns above,
Source of blessings without measure,
Telling of a Savior’s love.

Refrain
I will treasure thee,
Fondly treasure thee,
Blessèd Word of Life,
I’ll treasure thee;
I will treasure thee;
Fondly treasure thee;
Blessèd Word of Life,
I’ll treasure thee.

2. When assailed by doubt or sorrow,
’Tis this Book alone can give
Hope and courage for the morrow,
And all doubt and fear remove. [Refrain]

3. Blessèd Bible! much I love thee!
Naught so dear has e’er been giv’n.
I will ponder well and heed thee,
Pointing out the way to Heav’n. [Refrain]
