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.
1 How precious is God's holy word,
That word of life and peace,
Shews man the way unto the Lord,
The way of happiness.
2 How bless'd are they, and only they,
Who wish the truth to know;
Who seek to find the righteous way,
And strive therein to go.
3 Lord, in thy presence we appear,
Here at thy throne we stand.
Make us thy word of truth to hear,
And live to thy command.
4 O! mighty Shepherd of thy sheep,
Who seekest those that stray;
Thy blessed word and staff can keep
Us in thy righteous way.
5 Teach us the way of life and truth,
The way of righteousness.
Direct O Lord! the wand'ring youth,
The way of life and peace.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CXCVI
