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

Holy Bible, Book of love

Representative Text

1. Holy Bible, Book of love,
Tell me of our God above.
He who made me loves me still,
Helps me know and do His will.

2. Holy Bible speak to me
Of the life that I should lead.
Help me stronger, purer grown,
And God's love to others show.

3. Holy bible, once again
Tell of God's great love to man--
How He gave His only Son,
How Christ died for ev'ryone.

4. Holy Bible, Book of love,
Tell me of the home above;
Of the place prepared for me,
Where with Christ I can ever be.
