Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Holy Bible, Book of love

Full 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.
